Abstract

My article examines Anca Vlasopolos's No Return Address: A Memoir of Displacement (2000) and Kapka Kassabova's Street Without A Name: Childhood and Other Misadventures in Bulgaria (2008) in order to demonstrate how, in the case of communism, "intimate publics" was a space of survival, a means to evade full ideological indoctrination and also the very space of continuous state oppression.
