This is available to listen to at BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qftk

I have listened to the first 15 minute episode and this, THIS, is not to be missed. OK, I can read the book later.

I also want to read Logavina Street: Life And Death In A Sarajevo Neighborhood. Why? Because I just finished Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea, by the same author and it was very, very good! This author is not good for our TBR mountains.

Thank you for telling me of the BBC link, Laura!

Daisy Thanks Chrissie. The North Korea book was amazing so I really want to read these also. Glad you brought attention to them.

Chrissie I agree totally about "Nothing to Envy". I have found few BBC presentations that make me want to buy the book, but this one is so good I believe it will also lead up to a book purchase.
