Kassabova recalls growing up in a crumbling communist apartment block and her struggles learning Russian. Returning to the post-Communist country, she sees a new element of lawlessness. Through her personal experiences, we see distilled a country’s essence and the enormous changes it’s experienced in the last half century.
Narrator Emily Gray offers a rueful performance, with a British accent, about one woman’s search for her cultural identity.

This book took me back in time
Good book. I found many of the stories from post communist Bulgaria painfully familiar especially the ones with the family members.
The communist system produced a few lost generations of confused souls with stories that are difficult to explain to somebody coming from a free world.

Very revealing of life behind iron curtain
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Very revealing of life behind iron curtain. These things you need to know. Be prepared though; some of the recalled events will break your heart.
What aspect of Emily Gray’s performance would you have changed?
She's not the best ready. Didn't do very well with voices of different characters.
