Vitali Vitaliev is that rare thing: a comic writer who is also serious. Read this book for the pleasure of Vitaliev's wry take on human folly and for his penetrating analysis of a continent grappling with manifold dilemmas. He is, as always, a great travelling companion. --Douglas Kennedy<br /><br />Imagine Michael Palin, Clive Anderson and Bill Bryson all rolled into one and you ll have some idea of what to expect. --Ego

Vitaliev takes the reader on an original trip around European enclaves - describing, as he perambulates, various Western European (and other) national characteristics. I now know more than I did about Europe, and, equally as important, Europe at a pivotal time in its history. Both literature and history need these kinds of journalistic books. Where would we be without Pepys' diary?
In addition to Vitaliev's informed opinions about identity, and his thorough analysis of the varying quality of coffee being prepared by European baristas, `Passport to Enclavia' is peppered with insightful quotes and nuggets of wisdom from a plethora of celebrated social commentators.
Well worth a read.
