5.0 out of 5 stars It's a necessary read!, 7 Oct 2003
This review is from: Necessary Lies (Paperback)
The book by Eva Stachniak is really a necessary read for those who are interested in identities and the ways they are created. Here Stachniak asks and partially answers questions about the perception of our identities. Anna, a Pole who emigrates to Canada, from the Canadian multicultural perpective and from the perspective of her own life, the two marriages,and change of places and attitudes, revisits Poland and rediscovers Wroclaw/Breslau. This city of her childhood and youth, formally treated as a "town without history" becomes a city with a powerful heritage. Stachniak touches upon a very important problem, not only for Poles, that is the idea of borderlands and their people and intervenes it with a love story which turns out to have been accompanied by lies. The title lies become an axis for the discussion of love, but also a political situation in Communist Poland as well as lies of the war time and they all come out because of Canadian idea of multiculturalism that serves as a catalyst.
