Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Poetic and moving . . . of the many books written on Bosnia, this collection of stories is perhaps the best."—Slavenka Drakulic´

Sarajevo Marlboro is Miljenko Jergovic´’s remarkable début collection of stories. Jergovic´ is a child of Sarajevo who remained in the city throughout the war. A dazzling storyteller, he brings a profoundly human, razor-sharp -understanding of the fate of the city’s young Muslims, Croats, and Serbs with a subterranean humor and profoundly personal vision. Their offbeat lives and daily -dramas play out in the foreground, the killing zone in the background.

Miljenko Jergovic was born in Sarajevo in 1966. A poet and journalist, he writes for the daily Oslobodjenje newspaper. He has written another collection of stories as well as two novels: Buick Riviera and Mama Leone. His work has been translated extensively throughout the world.

Stela Tomasevic (Translator) was born in Belgrade in 1963. She studied literature at the University of East -Anglia. She has translated numerous works of nonfiction from the Serbo-Croatian and from the French. She currently works for the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Former -Yugoslavia.

Ammiel Alcalay (Introduction) is a scholar, critic, trans-lator and poet. In his own words, "My immersion in a -diversity of languages and cultures has shaped and informed my place within American culture. I have come to see myself as a conveyor of ideas, texts, histories, cultural encounters and narrative points of view that, for a variety of reasons, have not gotten the attention they merit."

Synopsis:

These slices of life of war-ridden Sarajevo are full of humanity--they stretch the spirit.
