"Jergovic is an enormously talented storyteller." --Aleksandar Hemon A masterful collection of stories that draws the reader into a boy's episodic, profoundly personal recounting of his war-torn homeland and childhood. Dazzling, rhapsodic, and above all compassionate, these linked stories, deeply rooted in place and history, break down stereotypes and humanize a complex cultural conflict. Miljenko Jergovic, born in 1966, is a poet, novelist, and journalist. He was awarded the Ivan Goran Kovacic Award and the Mak Dizdar Award for Warsaw Observatoryand the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Prize for Sarajevo Marlboro(Archipelago Books, 2003), now in its third printing.
