"It's a feverish travelogue. . . .The enthusiasm is completely infectious."—Chicago Reader

"Princes Amongst Men is steeped in history, culture, and the foundations of Roma musical heritage."—The Bookwatch

"Insightful, energized, and empathetic."—Time Out

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 cliché 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.
