Nick Allan - When Dreams Collide - Travels in Yugoslavia with Rebecca West

Nick Allan is the best kind of traveller – observant, curious, highly intelligent. When Dreams Collide is an intimate pilgrimage across the former states of Yugoslavia. Shedding the obvious knowledge of headlines, he explores the splintered co-evolution of these lands over the last ten centuries, guided by the inimitable Rebecca West’s masterpiece: Black Lamb and Grey Falcon. At a turning point in his own life, Allan is drawn to explore this complex area of The Balkans through the lens of his part Eastern European heritage.
