Dr. Rajko Igic's free verse memoir relates tales from a rural childhood colored by war, nationalism and multicultural experiences. His authentic voice chronicles experiences most of us can never know, while his poems invite us into life in a small Serbian farming village. Daily life there seems simple and uncomplicated, but it thrives on the music, passions and imagination of neighboring Gypsies or Romano people. The war affects both groups, the Serbian farmers and the Gypsies, leaving a lasting mark on the land and on the culture. Dr. Igic s poems speak from the heart of one who has experienced the joys and the sorrows of those times.
