Slovenka Drakulic's examination of European identity through her collection of anecdotal essays is fantastic. She paints a remarkable picture of what it was like to be an Eastern European after the fall of communism. Everything from buying a vacuum, to the state of toilets, to travelling to israel, Drakulic examines what it means to be a Croat, an Eastern European, and if there is a possibility of ever reuniting the east and west. Great read, especially for those interested in european history!
