    Among the Living and the Dead: A Tale of Exile and Homecoming


Įprasta kaina €14,00 €0,00

Inara Verzemnieks was raised by her Latvian grandparents in Washington State, among expatriates who scattered smuggled Latvian sand over coffins, the children singing folk songs about a land none of them had visited. Her grandmother Livija's stories vividly recreated the home she fled during the Second World War, when she was separated from her sister, Ausma, whom she wouldn't see again for more than fifty years. 

Journeying back to their remote village, Inara comes to know Ausma and her trauma as an exile to Siberia under Stalin, while reconstructing Livija's survival through her years as a refugee. In uniting their stories, Inara honors both sisters in a haunting and luminous account of loss, survival, resilience, and love.
