Editorial Reviews

Review

"Vitali Vitaliev is that rare thing: a comic writer who is also serious. And what he says about the shifting currents of anEurope trying to redefine its identity in the wake of so many changedgeo-political realities is never less than compelling. Read this book for thepleasure of Vitaliev's wry take on human folly and for his penetrating analysisof a continent grappling with manifold dilemmas. He is, as always, a greattraveling companion."
DouglasKennedy
"This exploration of European identity makesfor a fascinating, often very funny, journey; and like all the best travellers,Vitaliev can also be magnificently grumpy."
Geographical
"Imagine MichaelPalin, Clive Anderson and Bill Bryson all rolled into one and you'll have someidea of what to expect."
Ego
"Vitaliev's good book is about the nature ofenclaves, the futility of frontiers and the ingenious and amusing ways thatpeople bothered by customs, border guards, permits and forms manage to swatthem away with minimum fuss."
