--an Interview with Al K.

Al K., born in the Czech Republic, has been sober for thirty years. In 1955, he fled his native country, escaping after being released from a labor camp. Eventually he made his way to the United States, got sober in Washington, D.C., and returned to his country after the revolution in 1990.
