Bury me standing : the Gypsies and their journey by Isabel Fonseca( Book )
42 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,555 libraries worldwide
After the revolutions of 1989, the author lived and traveled with the Gypsies of Bulgaria, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the former Yugoslavia, Romainia, and Albania -- listening to their stories and recording their attempts to become something more than despised outsiders. In this book, alongside unforgettable portraits of individuals -- the poet, the politician, the child prostitute- - are vivid insights into the wit, language, wisdom, and taboos of the Roma. The author also traces their long-ago exodus out of India and their history of relentless persecution: enslaved by the princes of medieval Romania; massacred by the Nazis in what the Roma call "the Devouring"; forcibly assimilated by the communist regime; and, most recently, evicted from their settlements by nationalistic mobs in the new "democracies" of the East, and under violent attack in the Western countries to which many have fled
Attachment by Isabel Fonseca( Book )
25 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,088 libraries worldwide
Jean Hubbard is a syndicated health columnist, her British husband, Mark, a successful advertising executive, and after more than twenty years together they revel in a sabbatical on a remote tropical island. But when Jean discovers a salacious love letter addressed to Mark, she realizes that she has misdiagnosed some acute pathologies in her own life. The long idyll of their mutual ease is over--but a more vivid and compelling quest has just begun. Looking for answers, Jean goes undercover with a surreptitious e-mail correspondence that propels her on to alarming, and illuminating, adventures of her own in her adopted home of London and her native New York
Bruno Fonseca : the secret life of painting by Alan Jenkins( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
"This account of Bruno Fonseca's life, unorthodox training, and startlingly diverse paintings, drawings, and sculpture illuminates his own remarkable work and at the same time invites us to consider what it means to be and to become an artist." "Told from three very different perspectives, the book's narratives offer welcome glimpses into the mysteries of how and why an artist creates."--Jacket
