Exit Into History: A Journey Through the New Eastern Europe

Exit Into History: A Journey Through the New Eastern Europe - Eva Hoffman I should really rate this lower for putting the idea into my addled young head that Bulgaria was an intellectual paradise, to visit or even to live. It's not the view of people from the new Bulgaria, so Ms. Hoffman's analysis of the positive effects of communism on creative life may not have quite described the Bulgarian politicos she praises. Still, I'm grateful she didn't spend the whole book fawning over Polish preeminence either.
