An exhilarating exploration of immigration and borders from an Albanian who fled a totalitarian madhouse, longing for Greece, where he found more absurditiesand eventually settled in America

Gazmend Kapllani

Translated from the Greek
by Anne-Marie Stanton-Ife

"Kapllani treats the absurdities of nationalism in the Balkans—and everywhere—with mischief, wit and insight." 
Boyd Tonkin, Independent (UK)

"One of this book’s pleasures is the author’s honesty, but one of its shocks is that it exposes an everyman’s struggle for dignity.”
Kapka Kassabova, Guardian

"An autobiographical meditation of what it means to be an immigrant. With great insight, through his personal story, Kapllani has enabled us far better to understand and enter into this overwhelming problem of our times." 
Peter Stansky, author of Edward Upward and Professor of History, Emeritus, Stanford University
