Born in Shanghai in 1931, Victor Vishnevsky is a Russian Lovara Rom by culture, an Iranian by citizenship, and a resident of Brazil. In Memories of a Gypsy he takes us from his childhood in Shanghai, through his family's flight from China in 1949, through Burma, India, and Iran, and on to his emigration to Brazil and later world travels. Along the way he presents his views on his and other Gypsy cultures, and offers his opinions on history and world affairs. Addressed directly to the reader, Vishnevsky's account is like a letter written to a friend.
