This is a successor to "Insanity Fair" which Mr. Reed, formerly London Times correspondent in Southeastern Europe, published last year. In the present book he continues to report, in his disconnected and rather formless way, on his peregrinations in Central Europe. In the process he continues his campaign of diatribe against various of his pet aversions, including the Nazis, the Jews and the Labor Party. Yet in spite of his violence and exaggerations -- perhaps because of them -- he manages to make a number of telling points that apparently still need driving home among many of his countrymen. A postscript brings his account down through the invasion of Czechoslovakia.
