Description - Zoli by Colum McCann

'Beautiful, thoughtful … sharp and scintillatingly sensual' Independent

'With this haunting, poetic work McCann has surely earned his place among the country’s greats' Metro
The life of Zoli Novotna begins on the leafy backroads of Slovakia, when she and her grandfather come upon a quiet lake where their family has been drowned by Fascist guards. Zoli and her grandfather flee to join up with another clan of travelling harpists. So begins an epic tale of song, intimacy and betrayal.

Based loosely on the true story of the Gypsy poet Papusza, and set against the backdrop of the Second World War, Zoli is a love story, a tale of loss, and a parable of modern-day Europe.
