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 in the course of the massacres international warfare II and the repression of the early Communist regime to the dissolution of Yugoslavia within the early Nineteen Nineties. It sheds mild at the historical past of Yugoslavia from the interwar state to the breakup of the socialist state.

In poignant and shiny element, Hadzisehovic paints an image not just of her personal existence yet of the lives of different Muslims, specially ladies, in an period and a space of serious swap. Readers are given a loving but actual portrait of Muslim customs touching on the loved ones, gardens, nutrients, and dating—in wanting daily life.

Hadzisehovic writes from the interior out, beginning along with her feelings and reports, then relocating outward to the evidence that predicament these drawn to this zone: the position of the Ustashe, Chetnicks, and Germans in international battle II, the perspective of Serb-dominated Yugoslavia towards Muslims, and the tragic nation of ethnic kin that ended in battle back within the 1990s.

Some of Hadzisehovic's reports 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 because 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 classification transformations have been simply as vital as non secular association. during this own, but common tale, Hadzisehovic mourns the lack of worlds—the orderly Muslim global of her adolescence and the secular, multi-ethnic global of communist Yugoslavia.
