Gypsies have always intrigued and fascinated - partly because of their mysterious origins, and partly because of the romance of nomadism. But because they resist assimilation, having survived as a distinct people for over a thousand years, they have also been the victims of other people's nationalism and xenophobia. In this fascinating and timely study, Fonseca focuses particularly on the gypsies in Eastern Europe (an estimated 6 million), and their future as a distinct race within a nationalist Europe. While researching the book, Fonseca learned Romany and stayed with the gypsies, becoming deeply involved with their lives, and befriending several gypsy kings. The result is a clolourful and frank book, filled with enthusiasm and curiosity, without lapsing into piety or romanticism.

Quatrième de couverture :

'A grand panorama of European gypsydom, its history, its present condition and future prospects' Jan Morris, Sunday Times

'Isabel Fonseca's book is a passionate and dramatic defense of the defenceless... This beautifully written story speaks in a way of all who do not want to submit to the reverses of fortune, who seek their own place on earth' Ryszard Kapuscinski

Fabled, feared, romanticised and reviled, the Gypsies - or Roma - are among the least understood people on earth. Now a diaspora of twelve million, their culture remains largely obscure. But in Isabel Fonseca they have found an eloquent witness.

In Bury Me Standing, alongside unforgettable portraits of individuals - the poet, the politician, the child prostitute - Fonseca offers sharp insights in to the humour, language, wisdom and taboos of the Roma. She traces their exodus out of India 1,000 years ago and their astonishing history of persecution: enslaved by the princes of medieval Romania; massacred by the Nazis; forcible assimilated by the communist regimes; and evicted from their settlements by nationalist mobs in Eastern Europe and, most recently, in Western Europe as well. Whether as handy scapegoats or figments of the romantic imagination, the Gypsies have always been with us - but never before have they been brought so vividly to life.

'A remarkable achievement. A gripping, original work' Edward W. Said

Featuring a new afterword by the author

Revue de presse :

"Compassionate, amusing, sardonic and highly intelligent" (Michael Ignatieff Independent on Sunday)

"Isabel Fonseca's book is literally a revelation: a hidden world - at once ignored and secretive, persecuted and unknown - is uncovered in these absorbing pages. She writes with grace, insight and passion, and peoples her text with vibrant characters brought vividly to life. It is a magnificent achievement" (Salman Rushdie)

"A grand panorama of European gypsydom, its history, its present condition and its future prospects" (Jan Morris Sunday Times)

"A passionate and dramatic defence of the defenceless... This beautifully written story speaks in a way of all who do not want to submit to he reverses of fortune, who seek their own place on earth" (Ryszard Kapuscinski)

"An utterly fascinating, and even inspiring, book" (Edward Mortimer Financial Times)
