Synopsis:

In this stylistically adventurous, brilliantly funny tour de force-the most highly acclaimed debut since Nathan Englander's-Aleksander Hemon writes of love and war, Sarajevo and America, with a skill and imagination that are breathtaking.

A love affair is experienced in the blink of an eye as the Archduke Ferdinand watches his wife succumb to an assassin's bullet. An exiled writer, working in a sandwich shop in Chicago, adjusts to the absurdities of his life. Love letters from war torn Sarajevo navigate the art of getting from point A to point B without being shot. With a surefooted sense of detail and life-saving humor, Aleksandar Hemon examines the overwhelming events of history and the effect they have on individual lives. These heartrending stories bear the unmistakable mark of an important new international writer.


Review:

"These fictions create a subtle picture of vivid recollection, in which incidental episodes of family history weave in and out of momentous events....There is no special pleading for the recent disasters of Balkan history, but these events have nevertheless had an unmistakable effect on the collection. This is an impressive book, which manipulates language in a way that both chills and satisfies."

David Utterson, Times Literary Supplement, 05/12/2000

Review:

"[A] brilliant debut....[A] kind of Balkan magic realism, rather darker-hued than that which colours Marquez's Latin America: more violent and unpredictable, more unsettling, more, dare one say it, substantial."

Christopher Hart, Literary Review, June 2000
