Synopsis:

A native of Sarajevo, where he spends his adolescence trying to become Bosnia’s answer to John Lennon, Jozef Pronek comes to the United States in 1992—just in time to watch war break out in his country, but too early to be a genuine refugee. Indeed, Jozef’s typical answer to inquiries about his origins and ethnicity is, “I am complicated.”

And so he proves to be—not just to himself, but to the revolving series of shadowy but insightful narrators who chart his progress from Sarajevo to Chicago; from a hilarious encounter with the first President Bush to a somewhat more grave one with a heavily armed Serb whom he has been hired to serve with court papers. Moving, disquieting, and exhilarating in its virtuosity, Nowhere Man is the kaleidoscopic portrait of a magnetic young man stranded in America by the war in Bosnia.


Review:

"An unusual structure, along with a striking pictorial and metaphoric imagination, offers distinctive literary pleasures in this genuinely original first novel....Think of the gifted Hemon as a kinder and gentler--and infinitely funnier--Jerzy Kosinski."

Kirkus, 08/01/2002

Review:

"Hemon's observations are rarely off target, and language remains his dearest friend....Hemon can't write a boring sentence, and the English language (which he adopted at a late age) is the richer for it....NOWHERE MAN succeeds more often than it fails and will very likely serve as a springboard for even greater feats of the imagination from Aleksandar Hemon."

Gary Shteyngart, New York Times Book Review, 09/15/2002
