This is a remarkable memoir that weaves the tragedy of twentieth-century history into a personal narrative of coming to terms with family and self, and manages to honour both stories. The writing is assured and controlled, the
storytelling expert and thoughtful, the language eloquent and moving. The writing, the story, the voice - all of it is beautiful.
