Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1998, Fernanda Eberstadt, her husband, and their two small children moved from New York to an area outside Perpignan, France — a city with one of the largest Gypsy populations in Western Europe. Here she found a jealously guarded culture, a society made, in part, of lawlessness and defiance of non-Gypsy norms; and she met Mose Espinas, the lead singer of the Gypsy band, Tekameli.

As her relationship with the Espinas family developed over the years, progressing from mutual bafflement to a deep-rooted friendship, Eberstadt found herself a part of the captivating Gypsy life–a life rich with tradition and culture, but slowly being consumed by the modern world.

Synopsis:

The author of The Furies and three other novels describes her family's move to Perpignan, a French city that is home to the largest Gypsy population in Western Europe, and her journey of discovery into the heart of the closely guarded world of Gypsy music and culture. Reprint.

Synopsis:

Fernanda Eberstadt is the author of four novels: The Furies, When the Sons of Heaven Meet the Daughters of the Earth, Low Tide, and Isaac and

His Devils. She graduated from Brearley in New York City and from Magdalen College, Oxford. She lives in France with her husband and two children.
