Last Days in Old Europe: Trieste ’79, Vienna ’85, Prague ’89


Part memoir, part reflection, this book will bring to life central Europe during the last ten years of the Cold War. Throughout, we encounter a diverse array of glittering characters: penniless aristocrats, charming gangsters, even Amazonian blondes in the service of eastern European spy agencies; fractious diplomatists and disinherited royalty supply a colourful supporting cast.
