We went Dubrovnik this past summer, and I read The Sound of Blue just before arriving. It is a powerful tale of people trying to live under conditions of war in 1992. There are some truly moving interactions between the characters, all of whom are seriously flawed but striving for something good. The little boy, drumming through the dark night leaves a haunting image.

In Dubrovnik, we spoke to people who had lived through the fighting, and their stories deepened my understanding of Payne's novel.
