Hi Alta, Thanks for recommending your new book to me. May I suggest one in turn? Please take a look at "Weeds Like Us" written by my husband, Gunter Nitsch. I think you'd enjoy it. Most of it takes place in Soviet occupied East Prussia following WWII.
Hi Alta, thanks for the note. I do read Nothomb in French - I love her style. I'm not surprised she is virtually unknown in the US: lots of European writers are!
I've had a look at your website: it's hard to decide what is fact and what is fiction, so I kept wondering: are you from the Ukraine too (like your great-aunt)?
