Born in a small river city within the mostly 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 during the massacres international struggle II and the repression of the early Communist regime to the dissolution of Yugoslavia within the early Nineteen Nineties. It sheds gentle at the historical past of Yugoslavia from the interwar country to the breakup of the socialist state.

In poignant and brilliant aspect, Hadzisehovic paints an image not just of her personal existence yet of the lives of alternative Muslims, particularly girls, in an period and a space of serious swap. Readers are given a loving but actual portrait of Muslim customs bearing on the family, gardens, nutrients, and dating—in in need of daily life.

Hadzisehovic writes from the interior out, beginning together with her feelings and stories, then relocating outward to the evidence that trouble these attracted to this area: the function of the Ustashe, Chetnicks, and Germans in international warfare II, the angle of Serb-dominated Yugoslavia towards Muslims, and the tragic kingdom of ethnic relatives that resulted in conflict back within the 1990s.

Some of Hadzisehovic's studies and lots of of her perspectives could be arguable. She speaks of Muslim women's reluctance to renounce the veil, the hazards of combined marriages, and the issues attributable to 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 classification ameliorations 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 global of communist Yugoslavia.
