I am just finishing up another good book.
Zoli, by Colum McCann
and I just love it, because it is such a departure from what I have been hung up on lately.
It is about a young Roma girl's life, her poetry and struggles and exile from her community in WWII Slovakia.
The writing is so nice and not at all sentimental or melodramatic.
I have had a fascination with Roma culture for a long time, but you just don't find that many resources to learn more.
I picked up this book totally randomly, in the library (I mean literally picked up, as my four year old pulled it off the shelf.)
