Letta knows little of Varina, a tiny Balkan state where her parents grew up. But as Eastern Europe plunges into chaos following the collapse of communism, Letta's grandfather - who bears the same name as Varina's legendary hero - becomes a figurehead for calls of independence for the nation.
Letta begins to take an interest in Varina, the tiny Balkan state where her parents grew up. But after the collapse of communism the nation calls for independence, and Letta's enthusiasm for her parent's culture leads her to discover just how fragile the nation really is. A powerful and timely novel from the award-winning author of TULKU, EVA, A.K. and A BONE FROM A DRY SEA.
