Description

With his expert knowledge of the history and culture of Europe, and his keen eye for the bizarre, Sacheveral Sitwell was the ideal guide to the people and places of 1930s Romania. Sweeping from the rich and varied scenery of the Carpathians and the plains of Transylvania and Wallachia to the Danube Delta, he introduces characters as diverse as Laetzi gypsies, circus dwarves and King Carol I. This tour of a young nation seemingly untouched at the time by the 20th century is even more poignant in the light of Romania's subsequent tragedies.show more
