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 a halt 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 global conflict II and the repression of the early Communist regime to the dissolution of Yugoslavia within the early Nineties. It sheds gentle at the historical past of Yugoslavia from the interwar country to the breakup of the socialist state.

In poignant and brilliant aspect, Hadzisehovic paints an image not just of her personal existence yet of the lives of different Muslims, specifically girls, in an period and a space of significant switch. Readers are given a loving but actual portrait of Muslim customs touching on the loved ones, gardens, nutrition, and dating—in wanting daily life.

Hadzisehovic writes from the interior out, beginning along with her feelings and stories, then relocating outward to the evidence that crisis these drawn to this sector: the position of the Ustashe, Chetnicks, and Germans in international battle II, the angle of Serb-dominated Yugoslavia towards Muslims, and the tragic kingdom of ethnic kinfolk that ended in warfare back within the 1990s.

Some of Hadzisehovic's studies and plenty of of her perspectives might be arguable. She speaks of Muslim women's reluctance to renounce the veil, the hazards of combined marriages, and the issues brought on by Serb and Croat nationalists. Her benign view of Italian profession 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 spiritual association. during this own, but common tale, Hadzisehovic mourns the lack of worlds—the orderly Muslim global of her youth and the secular, multi-ethnic international of communist Yugoslavia.
