Located over a fracture of tectonic plates, the Balkans manifest geological as well as political instability. The award-winning author's 1997 trip through the area reveals much about the people and their issues, not all of which are peculiar to that place or time. The audio odyssey takes many detours, but luckily Steven Crossley provides a focus as he enlivens the occasional dull portions with spirited characterizations and his personal, British, perspective. Descriptions of life in these war-torn zones, once the cradle of European civilization, form vivid pictures in the imagination. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
