With Their Backs to the World: Portraits from Serbia
From the award-winning author of The Bookseller of Kabul comes a remarkable insight into the lives of ordinary Serbs-under Milosevic, during the dramatic events leading up to his fall and finally in the troubled years that have followed.
Asne Seierstad travelled extensively through Serbia between 1999 and 2004, following the lives of people from across the political spectrum. Her moving and perpective account brings together nationalist, Titoists, Yugonostalgics, rock stars, fugitives and poets. With characteristic passion, perception and tenderness, Asne Seierstad offers a unique picture of daily life in Serbia, and a revealing study of the war and its aftermath.
