This week's Book Club book of the week is Burying The Typewriter by Carmen Bugan.
"This story starts roughly in the 1970s, a few years after I was born, about the time when I began to have memories and my father’s codename was already long established as “Andronic”, a name we learned about only last summer . . ."
At 2 a.m. on 10 March 1983, Carmen Bugan’s father left the family home, alone. That afternoon, Carmen returned from school to find secret police in her living room. Her father’s protest against the regime had changed her life for ever.
In Burying The Typewriter, Bugan tells the story of her "third life" as recorded in the secret files of the state police with in a poignant and poetic style which will enthral, charm and disturb in equal measure.
