THE BALKAN CALDRON

“Trust Me On This” is to be trusted.

Denise Hamilton’s article on Rebecca West’s 1941 two-volume “Black Lamb and Grey Falcon” well deserved searching my house for the books. (I found ‘em.)

Hamilton quotes part of West’s dedication: “To my friends in Yugoslavia, who are now all dead or enslaved. . . .”

The completion: “Grant to them the Fatherland of their desire, and make them again citizens of Paradise.”

That’s my prayer for the victims of today’s Balkan caldron.
