‘The Free World’ is a beautifully paced novel interspersed with both humour and tragedy that effectively captures the immigrant experience. The story opens in 1978 with the arrival of the Krasnansky family in Rome. Throughout the book, we are introduced to a colourful cast of characters including the family’s patriarch Samuil, his wife Emma, their eldest son Karl, and younger son Alec. Each family member struggles to find their way in Rome, while simultaneously dealing with the reasons for leaving the Soviet Union in the first place.
