Description of a struggle: the Vintage book of contemporary Eastern European writing
An electrifying collection of dispatches from 16 nations of Eastern Europe, as delivered by 43 of their finest and most arresting writers. With visions that are by turns beautiful, scathing, haunting, and gleefully surreal, they illuminate both the cruelties and absurdities that characterize daily life in their homelands and the world at large.
