With a keen eye for the unusual and the ironic, Szablowski takes us from eastern Europe to London, Greece, and Cuba, uncovering the stories of people whose lives haven't quite caught up with their countries' political turns: the women who take care of Stalin's childhood home in Georgia; the man who feigned being a healer to escape war crime accusations in Serbia; the villagers who turned their homes into hobbit holes for tourism in Poland.
