Press Reviews

"A memorable literary achievement." - Library Journal

"Sarajevo Blues is widely considered here to be the best piece of writing to emerge from the besieged capital since Bosnia's war erupted in April 1992." - The Washington Post


" Sarajevo Blues is at once a battle report and a philosophical investigation. In poems, micro-essays, and prose vignettes, Semezdin Mehmedinovic charts the collapse of a world with heart-breaking clarity and precision." -Paul Auster
