In 1998, Fernanda Eberstadt, her husband, and their two small children moved from New York to an area outside Perpignan, France Ś a city with one of the largest Gypsy populations in Western Europe. Here she found a jealously guarded culture, a society made, in part, of lawlessness and defiance of non-Gypsy norms; and she met Mo¤se Espinas, the lead singer of the Gypsy band, Tekameli.

As her relationship with the Espinas family developed over the years, progressing from mutual bafflement to a deep-rooted friendship, Eberstadt found herself a part of the captivating Gypsy lifeľa life rich with tradition and culture, but slowly being consumed by the modern world.

Good reference on a hard-to-find topic; prefer more scholarly work, but I'm not complaining! Read full review

User Review  - Meg - A Bookish Affair - Goodreads

I could not get into this book at all. The author seemed to think that most of the readers of the book would have a good background in the history of gypsies, which I do not. I found myself very lost. Read full review
