From Publishers Weekly:
The year 1990 was an eventful one for Rezzori. Diagnosed with a malignant growth but told he has a few more years to live, the eminent novelist (Orient Express), nearing 80, journeys to Bucharest as a prelude to revisiting his native region of Bukovina (once part of Austro-Hungary, today in Romania and Ukraine). Despite the assassination of Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, Rezzori finds that the privation, fear and oppression remain and advocates a return to monarchy as the only hope for guiding Romania toward a democratic future. He also visits Pondicherry, India, home of the Sri Aurobindo Society, which he dismisses as "religious opportunism" and a personality cult. Ransacking memories, he eerily contrasts the"spiritually sanitized" Berlin of 1938 with the Cologne of 1990, where he attends a carnival characterized, he writes, by "Individual fulfillment in the submission of thousands of ecstatically emptied-out souls." And he beautifully evokes Tuscany, his home base, where he and his wife live in a medieval house overlooking the Arno Valley. Rezzori casts a spell in an elegant, mordantly witty, dazzling memoir written in a freewheeling style that borders on free association.
