Street Without A Name: Childhood and Other Misadventures in Bulgaria
Born in Sofia, Kapka Kassabova grew up under the last years of Cold War Communism in the 1980s, emigrated after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and has loved and hated her homeland in equal measure ever since.
Thirty years later, as Bulgaria was joining the EU, Kapka revisited the country of her childhood and her own relationship to it to discover just how much it - and she - had changed. With the irreverence of an expat, the curiosity of a visitor, and the soul of a poet, Kassabova brings to life the past and present of Bulgaria, as well as probing the complicated connection between place and mind, between geography and fate.
'A fascinating book, at once evocative, disturbing and chock-a-block full of charm' Jan Morris
