Born in a small river city within the principally Muslim province of Sandzak, Munevera Hadzisehovic grew up in a space sandwiched among the Orthodox Christian areas of Montenegro and Serbia, bring to an end from different Muslims in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her tale takes her reader from the city tradition of the early Thirties throughout the massacres global warfare II and the repression of the early Communist regime to the dissolution of Yugoslavia within the early Nineties. It sheds gentle at the historical past of Yugoslavia from the interwar state to the breakup of the socialist state.

In poignant and brilliant element, Hadzisehovic paints an image not just of her personal lifestyles yet of the lives of alternative Muslims, specifically girls, in an period and a space of serious switch. Readers are given a loving but actual portrait of Muslim customs referring to the family, gardens, nutrients, and dating—in in need of daily life.

Hadzisehovic writes from the interior out, beginning along with her feelings and reviews, then relocating outward to the proof that predicament these attracted to this sector: the position of the Ustashe, Chetnicks, and Germans in global warfare II, the angle of Serb-dominated Yugoslavia towards Muslims, and the tragic nation of ethnic kinfolk that resulted in battle back within the 1990s.

Some of Hadzisehovic's reports and plenty of of her perspectives will be arguable. She speaks of Muslim women's reluctance to renounce the veil, the hazards of combined marriages, and the issues as a result of Serb and Croat nationalists. Her benign view of Italian career is in stark distinction to her depiction of bloodthirsty Chetnik irregulars. Her research of Belgrade's Muslims means that type modifications have been simply as very important as spiritual association. during this own, but common tale, Hadzisehovic mourns the lack of worlds—the orderly Muslim international of her early life and the secular, multi-ethnic international of communist Yugoslavia.
