Reconnaissance - Kapka Kassabova
- Unit Price
Nadejda is backpacking around New Zealand, in the surreal haze of summer. Her encounters are comic and revealing - and often sexual. But Nadejda's tour is a deep and personal one; it is a journey into memory and family myth. Faded memories of happier times conflict with more disturbing pictures as her determination to uncover the truth is diffused with an immigrant's yearning to belong and a young woman's longing for love. A powerful novel set against the turmoil of present-day Bulgaria and the sweet simplicity of her new country, Reconnaissance is a grand, sweeping novel of family secrets, dislocation and ultimate reconciliation.
