The British Crossley skillfully portrays the author, a mercenary photojournalist in the Balkan War, who is preoccupied with taking narcotics, rather than pictures. Listening to this first-person account, the listener thrashes around in time and place, being fed fact and fiction (the author claims his grandmother requested and sustained an appendectomy without anesthesia) in a rambling mixture. The reader adroitly conveys the atrocities of war. In a nutshell, we have a confusing account of a confusing war written by a confused author, who relies on heroin for inspiration and "f___ing" as a favorite adjective. Without a doubt, Steven Crossley saves the book. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
