John Bills grew up in the middle of Wales, doing so with terrible eyesight and an almost insatiable love of crisps and lists, but not lists of crisps. Somehow this all led to an adult life spent in the Balkans, which itself eventually became an adult life in Prague. He is the author of three books on Central and Eastern Europe, although by the time you read this that number might be four or five. His books are available at www.poshlostbooks.com, and you can keep up with his gibberish over at billsjohn.wordpress.com. He still loves crisps and lists.
