" My voice was not as sweet as Conka`s, but Grandfather said that it hardly mattered, the important thing was the right word, to pull it out, or squeeze it short, and then dress it up with air from my lungs. He said that when Conka and I sang, we were air and water in a pot, and together we boiled."

This is a wonderful book about the life of the ROMANI ( Gypsy) people in Cechoslovakia between 1940-2003. It isa the story ofa singer and a poet who became famous behind the iron curtain and escaped to the West. Giva ita read. Have you thought ofa where all the gypsies gone, they camped in former times in front of the town at the river on a car park? This is the only people who are not computerised and digitally registered. They are still fighting aginst that. And Colum McCann isa phantastic writer!!!!! (In djerman you only geta Hardback edition)
Yours frändly Murat
