Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungIn this book, ex-communist Gojko Beric reflects with irony at his ex-Yugoslav countrymen, noting the absurdities of ethnic conflict as well as its tragedies. Beric spent parts of the war away from Sarajevo, in Ljubljana, and uses his absence to observe from abroad the pain of distance and the shock of return. He was one of a small number of chroniclers and commentators of that period and constant themes in the book are those of citizenship, belonging and the city. His book is about the dark, bloody, final decade of the 20th century in the former Yugoslavia.
PortraitGojko Beric is one of Bosnia-Herzegovina's best-known commentators. In 1991 he became the first political columnist to be awarded the prestigious 6 April Prize,commemorating Sarajevo's 1945 liberation, and was voted Journalist of the Year by the Journalists' Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992.
