    Hardcover✓ Zoli PDF EPUB ç zoli mobile, Zoli MOBIA beautiful and harrowing novel by one of my favorite contemporary authors It traces the life of a female gypsy poet from the horrors of World War II to the stultifying world of Communist Eastern Europe to a dramatic escape to the West We see so much of European history through the lens of this incredibly articulate sensitive soul all told with McCann's densely descriptive narrative intensity For a taste of the prose here's the opening sentence He drives along the small streambed and the terrible shitscape looms up by increments upturned buckets by the bend in the river a broken baby carriage in the weeds a petrol drum leaking out a dry tongue of rust the carcass of a fridge in the brambles It's been a while since I've read the book but I still see that tongue of rust in my imagination along with so much else in this brilliant book

    Hardcover✓ Zoli PDF EPUB ç zoli mobile, Zoli MOBII enjoyed this a lot for its window on Romany “Gypsy” culture in Slovakia from the 30’s to the 50’s and its portrait of the life of a fictional poet trying to put a voice to her people “A” for the effort by an American author in trying to portray such a girl and woman from a first person perspective but “B” for not uite succeeding in making her come alive for me Maybe that’s inevitable for such an “alien” and closed off culture so I still recommend the book for taking me the distanceThe story most drew me in with its initial sections of the imagined life of a Roma girl growing up with her grandfather after losing her family at an early age and finding her niche as a singer The secretive but rich life of this mobile culture is lovingly revealed through the lens of Zoli’s vision The essence of life on the move the caravans jo

    Hardcover✓ Zoli PDF EPUB ç zoli mobile, Zoli MOBIWhile I read this book I grappled with my lack of understanding This is a book of historical fiction; I could not make up my mind if I wanted to learn the details about the life of Romani poet Papsuza 1910 1987 on which this book is loosely based or whether I should just read the book for the delight of falling into the story Only when I stopped trying to learn the factual details and let myself just plain enjoy the story did I enjoy the book In the process I did learn very much about the Romani culture I learned a bit about Papsuza too but there are major differences between the main

    Hardcover✓ Zoli PDF EPUB ç zoli mobile, Zoli MOBII loved this book I started reading it on the airplane journey home from Vienna after a long weekend and a previous novel by Josef Roth immersed in the Hapsburg empire It felt very appropriate The book creates a rich atmosphere of the nomadic lifestyle of gypsies during and after World War II in the areas of what once was the Austro Hungarian empire The book also takes place in part during the transition years of communism in what is today Slovakia I learned much about the Romani lifestyle and their old world s The book makes me want to go out and find a nonfiction book about the Romani people just so that I can have of the blanks filled in The language flowed The images sparkled The world described in the book felt very real to me This is the second book I have read by Colum McCann I definitely want to read of his work He's a great writer
