Part memoir, part reflection, this book brings to life central Europe during the last ten years of the Cold War. It begins in Trieste in 1979 where the embers of the Habsburg Empire still burnt brightly, and then moves to the darker, claustrophobic world of Vienna in 1985. It recreates the farce and tragedy of the last days of communism.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

A merging of memoir, history and reportage comparable to Patrick Leigh Fermor, looking back at the intricacies of lived experience in the Trieste of 1979, Vienna of 1985 and Prague of 1989.
