Read in July, 2003

Aleksander Hemon is a Sarajevan who came to Chicago as a tourist (speaking little English) in 1992 when the siege of Sarajevo began, and so he didn't go back. And then, less than ten years after he arrived, he published this book of short stories in more beautiful English than I could ever hope to write. There's a passage in "A Coin" describing how best to get from point A to point B when you know you're in view of a sniper that made me feel sick for a week (which is a good thing).
