Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia by Rebecca West
Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia

Tom Hudak, September 20, 2011

I can't believe I let this book sit on my shelf unread for so many years. Ok, maybe its length is intimidating. And to be honest, I am only halfway through. But what a great read on so many levels: journalism, history, and literature. I am marking passages worth coming back to, and am finding them throughout.
