Journal Entry 1 by eastbaybookmisr from Oakland, California USA on Thursday, February 22, 2024
1997 Arcade hardcover, with dust jacket, of the English translation by Geoffrey Strachan of the 1995 French Winner of the Goncourt Prize and Medicis Prize tale of a boy growing in the 1960s and 70s Soviet system, and his love for his elegant French grandmother in a remote dusty village, who during his summer visits reminisces about her old home of Paris at the turn of the century, and her later life brutalized in Russia. By the Siberian author who grew up on the Volga, who gained political asylum on a trip to Paris in 1987. I found this copy a couple days ago in the Midvale Little Free Library.

Aside from loving shared books, my main passion in life is supporting the human rights work of my good friend, Anni Cyrus. 💖 💖 Her life story of survival as a childhood refugee is astounding, and quite moving!
