    I found this short book on Albania touchingly written and some parts of it beautifully observed. I enjoyed it very much. The book recounts the author's youthful fascination with a then little-known and mysterious country, viewed initially from the vantage point of pre WW2 maps and outdated books. As the narrative progresses the author/narrator discovers the Balkans,then and now,an exotic corner of Europe. Finally, in the mid-1980s, he managed to join a rare guided tour of a country as isolated then as North Korea is today. The result is a fascinating glimpse at a far-away period, not so far away. Albania on my Mind brings to life the author's enthusiasm for history, for travel and exploration, for quirky bookshops and off-beat attractions, for food and wine,for weird national dishes, for architecture, odd museums, and even odder displays of public art. Throughout, we grow accustomed (and then look forward) to the author's ironic observations. His touch is light, but penetrating. Some... More > fine character sketches and bits of humour.< Less
