    The physics of sorrow

    Using the myth of the Minotaur as its organising image, the narrator constructs a labyrinth of stories about his family, jumping from era to era and viewpoint to viewpoint, exploring the mindset and trappings of Eastern Europeans. Moving and funny, this is a book you can inhabit, tracing connections, getting pleasantly lost in the stories and empathising with the sorrowful, misunderstood Minotaur at the centre of it all.
