While this Another Fool in the Balkans was not as agonizingly long as Rebecca West's book, it was nearly as boring. The author clearly explained that he wasn't going to explore the entire Balkans region; however, I feel that he unfairly gives the region too much of a Serb/Croat flavour and totally discounts Bosnia.

This is a great writer ... OK, so maybe I'm biased because he mentions the local food in some detail. It's not so much a footsteps book in that he visits the same places as Rebecca West, but that he observes the similarities, and changes in the Yugoslav people. The only aspect that proved particularly challenging for me was that he goes into some detail regarding the Yugoslav (and expat) arts scene. Highly recommended, although one needs some familiarity with Balkan history to appreciate the book. ( )
