* It is hard to convey the flavour of a book so rich in observation, history, philosophy, political ideas and ironic humour. The Times * As a book about Yugoslavia it's a kind of metaphysical Lonely Planet that never requires updating. -- Geoff Dyer * It is a brilliant antidote to the disease that would have us believe that these are faraway countries about which we know nothing. Scotsman * impossible to put down, both timeless and of its time - a travel book and epic narrative history brimming with passion, anger, scholarship and intuition, hatred and love. Observer * Dame Rebecca, the finest reporter of her generation, saw everything...it is a remarkably easy read. Sunday Telegraph
