Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

After years on the outside, Bulgaria has finally made it into the EU club, but beyond the clichés about undrinkable plonk, cheap property, and assassins with poison-tipped umbrellas, the country remains a largely unknown quantity. Born on the muddy outskirts of Sofia, Kapka Kassabova grew up under Communism, got away just as soon as she could, and has loved and hated her homeland in equal measure ever since. In this illuminating and entertaining memoir, Kapka revisits Bulgaria and her own muddled relationship to it, travelling back to the scenes of her childhood, sampling its bizarre tourist sites, uncovering its centuries' old history of bloodshed and blurred borders, and capturing the absurdities and idiosyncrasies of her own and her country's past.

Kapka Kassabova has written a superb book that I highly recommend to anyone interested in good writing, Bulgaria, Eastern Europe, life under Communism, the rich history and mystifying mythology of that area of the world. It has an intimate quality about it that makes her personal reflections about her life, family and country poignant, totally captivating and universally appealing. Don't be fooled by the sad quality of the opening chapters on her childhood. The narrative builds as her tour of her country progress through her journey to all the places in her memory and through the geography and history of one of the oldest and most complex places in Europe. She returned from a 14 year exile and world travel to find her roots, or what is left of them, in her place of birth. Full of memorable stories, her story of meeting a woman survivor of the communist era concentration camps during one of her many train rides was most remarkable. The woman characterizes the camp as being like the ones that the Nazi's had. Then she qualifies that by saying that the Holocaust was really over-stated and that it never really happened. Why do you care about Jews, she asks Kapka. Are you a Jew? The ironies and complexities of our past rise to the top throughout this fine volume. I don't know if Kassabova found the peace in her soul that she was searching for, but she certainly provides a soulful experience for anyone who reads this book.
3.0 su 5 stelle an interesting diary of life in Bulgaria 1 ottobre 2016

Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
After completing an excellent tour all over Bulgaria, I started reading this book. It's about a young Bulgarian woman growing up during the time when Bulgaria goes from Soviet influence to independence in the late 1980's to early 1990's. It more or less tries to be a jocular diary of life during that era when life wasn't that much fun. It was easy to read and more or less reinforced what I had experienced when I had visited there. Bulgaria is a pretty low key destination with history and destinations, but nothing ostentatious. I didn't have a whole lot of an idea of what the place would be like before I visited, though I was glad I did.
5.0 su 5 stelle A highly recommended book for anyone interested in Bulgaria 25 febbraio 2015

Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This is the author's personal reflection of her life in Bulgaria under the last 2 decades of socialism and a trip to revisit places of personal importance for her 20 years later. While the account of life under socialism is very accurate, it has a darker hue, which may not be shared by other people who lived in those times there. Yet, it is a personal reflection, of a child growing up in the ugly panel block suburbs, in a young family who struggled to create a normal life and home, while managing two careers and two young daughters. Despite the darker hue of the pictures I find the account lovable with its honesty and sense of humour. The account of the journey 20 years later is also delightful and honest. A highly recommended book for anyone interested in Bulgaria.

A really interesting perspective on Bulgaria. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as an introduction to the complxity of the country and it's people. I started reading this book on the plane into Sofia, and many of Kapka's observations ring true. (including my baggage being lost!!) a very readable insight into Bulgaria.

This is a beautifully written nostalgic tour through the author and Bulgaria's history. Humorously sharing stories from her Cold War childhood, Kassabova recounts her past and current travels throughout the country. Never mocking, but always with an honest eye, she shares the varied histories of the towns and the people she encounters along the way.
