Attila Ambrus (the "Whiskey Robber") is currently out of prison. I was with him Hungary Feb 1, 2012, the day following his release. (The movie of his exiting the prison is on the book website.) He is now working as a ceramicist and living out Budapest, where he's making pottery and news on a regular basis.
The book also exists as a digital audio cabaret, which can be bought here. The performance stars Eric Bogosian, Gary Shteyngart, Demetri Martin, Jonathan Ames, Tommy Ramone and many others.
The book was the winner of (now defunct) Borders "Original Voices" Book of the Year, a finalist for the 2005 Edgar Allan Poe Award and a finalist for the Anthony Award. The audio cabaret was a finalist for the 2007 Audie Award for Best Audio Book.
My other work can be found at my personal site, which also includes links to other media about the book and my job from different publications, including the New Yorker, the New York Times Magazine, Travel + Leisure and many others.
There is also a dedicated website for the book, including links to songs that bands around the world have written about Attila, as well as the song I composed in his voice, and performed at festivals:
