What other readers are saying about this title:
Erica, California girl turned New Yorker, falls in love with a poet, not just any poet, but one known and esteemed in his newly-emerged-from-Yugoslavia country, Slovakia. It’s not a ‘new’ country, but one emerging from one more instance in its history of being a border land or buffer between Western Europe and the Balkans. This book is Erica’s memoir of her first ten years coming to terms with what love has wrought. It’s a cultural journey few Americans experience. I read it on recommendation of a friend who traveled there this summer. I recommend it—charming, engaging, thought provoking.
