On Easter morning, 1951, seven years after the fall of Bulgaria to Communist rule, thousands of men disappeared. Among them were both of Kalina Ivanov's grandfathers. The Longest Shadow is a lyrical and personal account of Ivanov's attempts to document the recent tentative steps toward democracy of the country she once fled, and to uncover the long-suppressed facts behind her grandfathers' arrests.
