Abstract:

"A passionate story of love, loss, and renewal set against the political upheavals of twentieth century Europe, Zoli captures the world of Gypsies more vibrantly than any other novel of the modern era. Zoli Novotna, a young woman raised in the traveling Gypsy tradition, is a poet by accident as much as desire. As fascism spreads over 1930s Czechoslovakia, Zoli and her grandfather flee to join a clan of fellow Romani harpists. But as Zoli's fame grows and her poetic skills deepen, the ruling Communists begin to use her for their own repressive purposes. Cast out from her family, Zoli finally abandons her past to journey to the West." From the bookjacket.
