HardCover Binding. Year: 1978. ISBN: 0394414764. Gypsy: Even today the word ignites romantic images of fortune tellers, thieves, caravans and dark-eyed lovers. But for Benoit, the protagonist of Stefan Kanfer's brilliant novel, the name connotes something else. When he emerges from the Nazi concentration camps he is acutely aware that except for a handful of legends, the world knows nothing of his people, a group almost wholly annihilated by the Third Reich. If he has been transfigured by his experience, he has also been disfigured by it, and his life thereafter is an attempt to deal with the past by denying it.
