Another Life: On Memory, Language, Love, and the Passage of TimeAnother Life: On Memory, Language, Love, and the Passage of Time by Theodor Kallifatides

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A beautifully written memoir on language, memory, love, and writing. Kallifatides was born in Greece and in his twenties moved and married in Sweden, where he established a literary career (writing in his adopted language Swedish). Suffering from writer's block in his seventies, he returns to Greece, visiting old haunts and his parents' home, contemplating the state of Europe (angry immigrant sentiment is not limited to the U.S.) and the economic despair in Greece. Highly recommended.
