About this title


The war in the Balkans provides the striking backdrop for these emotionally resonant, morally challenging, and uplifting short stories. Brkic’s collection gives voice to people caught in situations beyond their control, as man, woman, and child struggle to survive and understand what it means to live beyond those you love. A man trapped in a cellar; a sniper overlooking a city street; a young woman whose father is convicted of war crimes. Each character challenges the reader’s notions of conflict by living lives of surprising self-awareness, deceit, and courage.

About the Author:

Courtney Angela Brkic has worked for the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal in the The Hague and for Physicians for Human Rights. The Stone Fields, a memoir, will be published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in August 2004. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
