A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True by Brigid Pasulka

A story of magical realism mirroring the history of Poland, Pigeon, his wife Anielica and their Granddaughter Baba Yaga alternate in this delightful novel with the feel of a folktale. Even when the Germans are followed by the Russians the cast of characters manages to retain their grace and wit, in much the same way Poland has retained its individuality.
