Description

Bosnian-American writer Aleksandar Hemon has the stomach for tragedy and the eye to find it in commonplace things, even while the world around him is blowing apart amid crimes of historic scale. In his stories, the disaster of the Bosnian War comes to us via the failure of beehives and a freezer chest. An acclaimed novelist and short story writer, Hemon is the author of four books: The Question of Bruno, Nowhere Man, The Lazarus Project and Love and Obstacles, as well as a forthcoming collection of autobiographical essays, The Book of My Lives.

"Hemon’s writing sometimes reminds one of Nabokov’s…yet the feat of his invention exceeds the Russian’s."
– New Yorker
