This is the darkest book I have read since 'The Last Stand of Mr. America'. This being said it is absolutely fabulous and a must read. Gripping, thought provoking and emotional this book will have you reading until the end still wondering and thinking. I picked this up at the library knowing nothing about it and I am so glad I did. This should be read and discussed in our high schools and college English classes. If you have any reservations about buying/reading this book don't. It is fantastic and you will be glad you .

This book came to my attention as an award winning novel by a local author. It is almost poetic in places and provides a disturbing insight to the personal impact on individuals growing up in the chaos of the disintegration of Yugoslavia.

This so-called novel--whose narrator and main character has the same name as the author--captures the reader immediately with its headlong rush of fluent, stream-of-consciousness prose. It paints, in simultaneous layers, the adolescence of the narrator and his doppelganger, Mustafa, as the new republic of Bosnia comes under siege and life is disrupted by the brutality of war. One hero "escapes" to the USA and the other is perhaps killed, and hearts are twisted and tormented all along the way. Mr. Prcic is indeed a masterfully provocative and talented writer, but I did get weary of the anguished adolescent voice about two-thirds of the way through. As this writer matures, his work will bear watching. This book is a debut worth reading.
