Description
(Winner of the 2005 NIKE Literary Award) "The heart of my Europe," the author of Fado tells us, "beats in Sokolow, Podlaski, and in Husi, not in Vienna." No armchair traveler, Andrzej Stasiuk journeys by car, train, bus, and ferry from his native Poland to Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Albania, Moldova, and Ukraine, seeking out small towns and villages with unfamiliar-sounding yet strangely evocative names. In this 2004 travelogue, Stasiuk approaches Transylvania in an ancient Audi driven by a man wearing a crucifix but barely any clothing; sees an old woman shooing flies away from an open casket in the back of a pick-up truck; and meets the modern, rather unromantic gypsies of Moldova.
