The poems in this collection were written during the siege of Sarajevo. Goran Simi 'c, a Bosnian Serb, together with his Muslim wife and their two small children, lived in an apartment in the old quarter of the city and were trapped there throughout the three-year terror. The poems speak with an unique and terrible directness of the experience of war, and, in particular, of the besieging of a civilian population. This book is intended for poetry readers; those concerned with history and struggles of former Yugoslavia, and Sarajevo, during siege years.
