About the Author

Rory MacLean is one of Britain's most expressive and adventurous travel writers. His books - which have been translated into a dozen languages - include the Sunday Times bestseller Stalin's Nose, Under the Dragon and Berlin: Imagine a City, which was named a Book of the Year by the Washington Post.


[A] gripping book, part-travelogue, part contemporary history of Europe ... MacLean is an accomplished writer; his immersive prose crackles with wit and wry humour, and captures scenes and personalities with aplomb -- Daniel Beer * Guardian *
This is a timely book. It addresses the challenges of a fractious and fractured Europe ... MacLean is a compassionate writer, and he balances his stories of men and women of power ... with those of the dispossessed -- Sara Wheeler * Spectator *
This is a tremendous thing that MacLean is creating; a new kind of history, in several dimensions and innumerable moods, that adds up to - across the span of his books - a great and continuing work of literature -- Jan Morris
[An] eye-opening travelogue ... Sometimes darkly funny, often surprising and always compelling -- Tom Hawker * Wanderlust *
A gem of a book, informative, companionable, sometimes funny, and wholly original. MacLean must surely be the outstanding, and most indefatigable, traveller-writer of our time -- John le Carre
No one writes quite like Rory MacLean -- Robert Macfarlane
MacLean combines vivid reportage with unabashed soapboxing. The result is an engrossing travelogue that's both trenchantly observant and deeply felt * Publishers Weekly *
A triumph ... MacLean paints a convincing portrait of a Europe in turmoil -- Hugh MacDonald * Herald *
MacLean sheds some bleak light on the manoeuvers of post-Soviet Russia and populist, post-truth Europe in the decades since the Wall came down ... By turns fascinating and chilling -- Richard Smyth * Geographical *
MacLean excels at sketches. He uses them to tell deeper stories ... Every few pages, you light on a gem of observation -- Michael Sheridan * Tablet *
Entertaining, colourful stuff -- Best Books on Russia * Sunday Telegraph *
