East of the West
Available in Stock
A young girl runs into a cafe to announce the fall of a regime; an old man finds love letters his wife has hidden for 60 years; a teenager swims a border river to meet his lover. Wry, tender and touching, these beguiling tales span a century of Bulgarian history. Their rich cast of characters - gypsies and bagpipe makers, shepherds and partisans - deploy humour, courage and cunning to meet the challenges of dictatorship, revolution and war.
