Free is an engrossing memoir of coming of age amid political upheaval. Lea Ypi grew up in Albania, the last Stalinist outpost of Europe, where communism had officially replaced religion. In 1990, everything changed. As one generation’s aspirations became another’s disillusion, and as her own family secrets were revealed, Ypi found herself asking what freedom really meant.

‘Wonderfully funny and poignant . . . a tale of family secrets and political awakening amid a crumbling regime. One of the nonfiction titles of the year’ Observer

‘Astonishing and deeply resonant . . . Ypi weaves magic in this book: I was entranced from beginning to end’ Sunday Times
