Paperback - 2015
Rate this:
Sweeping us into the world of the Roma as fascism gathers force and the Holocaust looms on the horizon, The Color of Smoke is a thoroughly absorbing story that abounds in unforgettable characters. There is the adolescent narrator, torn between his people and a society that both entices him and rejects him. From his rise in school to his first sexual encounters, from hunger to police harassment, he treads a precarious path - one marked by moments of beauty and poignancy along with bawdiness, violence and high adventure.
