For fans of Educated, this is the remarkable true story of a girl from a Romani ghetto in search of a better life. Eliska Tanzer is a dreamer. Born into a family of prostitutes in a Romani ghetto, she grows up in squalid conditions, with no running water, no education, and no future. Desperate to make her own way in the world, Eliska sets in motion a chain of events that will lead her to England, to school, and to within inches of her dreams. But the brutalities of her new life threaten to turn the dream into a nightmare. This is her story. A true story of resilience, determination, and hunger to learn. A story of a girl on the brink. A moving and timely memoir from a powerful new voice in literature.

Recenzijas

'A remarkable book about the hardest of beginnings written in a voice that is vibrant, sparkling, full of irrepressible humour, compassionate intelligence and ultimately forgiveness' Catherine Simpson

Eliska Tanzer is a writer and dancer, not always at the same time. She completed a Creative Writing degree at the University of Wolverhampton and this is her first book. Eliska spends her time in the Midlands with an uncomfortably large collection of notebooks and sequins.
