On his wild and affectionate journey, Garth Cartwright wanders through the ruins of post-Communist Serbia and observes Roma refugees from the Kosovo conflict. Cartwright's engagement with Gypsy communities bypasses cliche and overturns prejudice to return with the true story of the Gypsies' Balkan blues.
Garth Cartwright lives in London. He is also the author of "More Miles Than Money.""
