Kuic has courageously plunged into an unusual topic, one which has not been touched upon in Yugoslav literature so far. In her attempt to show the destiny of a Sephardic Jewish family living on Bosnian soil, in Sarajevo, the author has gone much further: she shows the inevitability of historical developments; she paints history as a monster who continually returns in cycles, but also as a joker who readily changes the colours of its mosaic pieces. - David Albahari, writer, Belgrade It is not Jewish, it is not Yugoslav. It is about all people, and it is about the importance of family, told in a tough-minded way by a woman whose ancestors were survivors. The Scent of Rain in the Balkans is universal. - Jeanne Smoot, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of North Carolina, USA ... an exciting chronicle of a world apart, recounted in a readable, fluent, natural style, but not lacking in thoroughness... One of those novels that the reader cannot put down. - I. Mandic, literary critic NIN, 1987
