Love and Obstacles
Love and Obstacles
Aleksandar Hemon

Recommended by Paul, City Lights Books

From the celebrated author of the bestselling Lazarus Project-"a dazzling collection of stories...further cementing [Hemon's] position among the finest fiction writers working in English" (GQ).

The stories of Love and Obstacles are united by their narrator, a young man coming of age in Communist-but-cosmopolitan Sarajevo who will leave for the United States just as his city is torn asunder. In Hemon's hands, seemingly mundane childhood experiences become daring, dramatic adventures, while unique and wrenching circumstances become a common ground that involves us all. As cohesive and impressive as any novel, Love and Obstacles stands with the National Book Award finalist The Lazarus Project as the best work of Hemon's career.
