Books to read while travelling in Eastern Europe

Jump to last reply

Traveling solo, I'm going to need some good reading for all the trains, planes, and buses I'll be trekking along, and I'd like some recommendations for books that suit my travels. My itinerary goes like this: Israel (for Birthright) > Budapest > Krakow > Prague. So ideally, I'd like a novel by a Jewish author — since I'll be connecting with my heritage — that will also enrich my experiences in Europe. I'd prefer something that isn't terribly depressing, but malaise is kinda hard to avoid with post-Holocaust Jewish authors.

Any suggestions?
