Product description

Review

'Her confident, beguiling voice, her refusal to be pitied or patronised, reminds us that young people caught up in war have their own perspectives, their own stories to tell. I'm sure it is a voice we will hear more of in the future' Guardian "Maric is an exquisite, careful writer. Her sparse memoir, made up of a series of illuminating short stories, skewers Britain through a newcomer's eyes - With a linguistic talent remarkable for someone who began regularly speaking English only at the age of 16, Maric conveys the unsettling, often magical experience of losing her roots' Sunday Times Culture 'Told with humour and defiance, this is the inspiring tale of a brave young woman' Belfast Telegraph 'A powerful story' Independent on Sunday 'A wonderful, bittersweet memoir - A gifted, original writer - we are lucky to have her' Observer

About the Author

Vesna Maric was born in Mostar, in 1976. She left Bosnia-Herzegovina and went on to work for the BBC World Service and now writes Lonely Planet travel guides and a variety of journalism. She lives in London.
