The Good Life Elsewhere by Vladimir Lorchenkov
The Good Life Elsewhere book will take you to Moldova. I guess you are asking yourself: ' What is that' or 'Where is that'. Well, it is a tiny lovely country in Eastern Europe. It is a country with a lot of problems but, as author vividly shows, it’s a country whose residents don’t easily give up.
The Good Life Elsewhere is a very funny book. It is also a very sad one. Moldovan writer Vladimir Lorchenkov tells the story of a group of villagers and their tragicomic efforts, against all odds and at any cost, to emigrate from Europe’s most impoverished nation to Italy for work. This is a book with a wild imagination and heartbreaking honesty, grim appraisals alongside optimistic commentary about the nature of human striving.
Enjoy the read!
