The Snows of Yesteryear: Portraits for an Autobiography

by Gregor Von Rezzori - £12.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141192734 | ISBN 10: 0141192739

The Snows of Yesteryear (1989) is Gregor von Rezzori's haunting evocation of his childhood in Czernowitz, in present-day Ukraine.
 
Growing up after the First World War, Rezzori portrays a twilit world suspended between the dying ways of an imperial past and the terrors of the twentieth century. He recalls his volatile, boar-hunting father, his earthy nursemaid, his fragile, aristocratic mother, his adored governess and the tragic death of his beloved sister, in a luminous story of war, unrest, eccentricity, folk tales, dark forests, night flights, and what it is like to lose your home.
