In this stylistically adventurous, brilliantly funny tour de
force-the most highly acclaimed debut since Nathan
Englander's-Aleksander Hemon writes of love and war, Sarajevo and
America, with a skill and imagination that are breathtaking.
A love affair is experienced in the blink of an eye as the Archduke
Ferdinand watches his wife succumb to an assassin's bullet. An
exiled writer, working in a sandwich shop in Chicago, adjusts to
the absurdities of his life. Love letters from war torn Sarajevo
navigate the art of getting from point A to point B without being
shot. With a surefooted sense of detail and life-saving humor,
Aleksandar Hemon examines the overwhelming events of history and
the effect they have on individual lives. These heartrending
stories bear the unmistakable mark of an important new
"From the Trade Paperback edition."
