Summary
Lala has lived a dazzling life. Born in Poland just after the First World War and brought up to be a perfect example of her class and generation -- tolerant, selfless and brave -- Lala is an independent woman who has survived some of the most turbulent events of her time. As she senses the first signs of dementia, she battles to keep her memories alive through her stories, telling her grandson tales of a life filled with love, faithlessness and extraordoinary acts of courage
Summary
A biographical novel portrays the author's grandmother's life, from Kiev in 1875 to modern-day Poland, a family saga that stretches across the major events of the twentieth century
