"A compelling combination of literary criticism and travelogue" * Scotland on Sunday * "Westerman is a very fine writer and his stories, characters and digressions are as delicately wrought as a watch mechanism. Like Bruce Chatwin and the Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski, he has elevated the authorial journalist-traveller into a brilliant, magic storyteller; like them he seeks out the smaller, human-sized epics that play out their tragedies against the backdrop of history" * Sunday Times * "Westerman completes a portrait at once engaging and devastating. As such, it comes closer than any conventional literary history to defining the elusive Socialist Realism." * Independent * "An extraordinarily compelling, imaginative and subtle mixture of history, literary criticism and travelogue" * History Today * "Brilliant, illuminating and rich" * Literary Review *
