Reviews

"Borders and their intrinsic, deforming violence remain Kassabova's subject. But in this book she goes further, tracing the intrusion of those cracks deeper into the souls and psyche of successive generations, herself included. . . . The book's achievement . . . is to reconcile, thrillingly, what those twin bodies of water represent to Kassabova: the unconscious and the conscious; the darkness of history and the radiance of life and love."--The Guardian (UK)

"To the Lake is an exquisitely written rallying cry to embrace the notion that the people of the Balkans--and indeed humanity as a whole--have more in common than what divides them, despite generations of strife suggesting otherwise."- Financial Times (UK)

"From the deep labyrinths of the Balkan past, Kapka Kassabova has returned with another hoard of extraordinary lives, tales of survival, dark comedy, and horror. Humanity glitters under her gaze in all its facets. Her prose is spectacularly good and her storytelling is a joy."--Philip Marsden
