Yugoslavia, My Fatherland in The Irish Times

Yugoslavia, My Fatherland, published earlier in the year by Istros Books, received a rave review from Eileen Battersby in The Irish Times on Saturday.
You can read the whole review here, but if you prefer the edited highlights...
''At last comes a work which will become required reading both within and beyond the Balkans. It is profound and important and, quietly published in translation from a small publisher, it is far more convincing then many more imagined and over-hyped works which simply lack the essential truths which only an insider can bring to a narrative.''

''It is interesting that a narrative which is so conversational and deceptively simple is in fact a seamlessly technically sophisticated work. This a fine novel; it is also a very important book.''

She's not wrong!
