    Paperback È Fado PDF/EPUB Ú fado pdf, Fado EpubSince we are now waist deep in the vast and rugged literary landscape of Eastern Europe it's appropriate to introduce a book that is the ultimate travelogue to accompany us on our journey Fado by the Polish writer Andrzej Stasiuk reads like a urban shepherd traversing the land around him not for answers to questions he has but he goes out in search of questions themselves He wanders and wonders observing the pastiche

    Paperback È Fado PDF/EPUB Ú fado pdf, Fado EpubI read this series of meditations on Eastern European life because well I know next to nothing about Eastern Europe which thus makes it a compelling location Incidentally a few of the essays are about the seeming non existence of the region because the consensus seems to be that life culture politics and everything are centered in Western Europe Also repeated is the insistence of mixing old and new the farm worker holding his scythe as he walks among skyscrapers bordered by centuries old buildings and the seeming ignorance of each to the other Eastern Europe and its inhabitants thus exist as passengers to history and progress with each tugging in seemingly opposite ways only to leave something paradoxically undisturbedIt puts a human spin on a blank zone in my mental map and I read it in 3 sittings so it's a fun diversion Though in fact to live in the Carpathians is to remember that citizenship or nationality were alwa

    Paperback È Fado PDF/EPUB Ú fado pdf, Fado EpubHmmm this was an odd little book To enjoy it you need to 1 be very interested in Eastern Europe and 2 be accustomed to or willing to experience a very associative style of writing with no clear argument narrative or interpretive lens Actually the succession of images almost lends itself to poetry than prose And there were interesting thought provoking imagesA settlement of Gypsies living literally below ground in an abandoned mineA former prison reopened as a boutique hostel called The Place of Freedom and the patrons who apparently feel that the most important freedom that had been lacking was good haircuts and good sexA tiny Polish town preparing for the Pope's visit and the glistening sunglassed security detail sticking out among the peasantsSheep herders that smell like cheeseI can't say that I enjoyed it that much but

    Paperback È Fado PDF/EPUB Ú fado pdf, Fado EpubFado begins as a dream middles as a travelogue through Eastern Europe a land with the highest density of nations and conflicts in between dabbles as a Fukuyama for Europe and then ends as a memoir Stasiuk struggles to maintain a coherent spine along the book but at several places his writing is sharp and almost prescient His forecast of Europe's decline seems well on track His description of the lack of present in Eastern Europe and its ability to only absorb mass culture from the West probably stands true for most aspirational cultures The highlight of this book for me are his rather disconnected musings on his own fatherhood and

    Paperback È Fado PDF/EPUB Ú fado pdf, Fado EpubAn enjoyable journey through the backwaters and boondocks of southeastern Europe from Poland to Albania Stasiuk stays away from the region's notable sites and instead travels among and alongside people who don't make it into the popular guide books At times he is surprisingly prescient about what would happen in this area just a few years hence He also helps us understand the roots of what is going on today in places like Poland Hungary a
