The Fixer: A Story from Sarajevo

by Joe Sacco
£12.99   paperback  Vintage (2004)

The Fixer: A Story from Sarajevo by Joe Sacco In The Fixer Joe Sacco returns to Bosnia, the setting for his first masterpiece, Safe Area Gorazde.
 
In 2001 he went back to Sarajevo to meet up with his old 'fixer', an army veteran called Neven who, for the right price, could arrange anything for the visiting journalist. Sacco gradually realized that Neven's own story - a microcosm of the Balklan conflict itself - might be the most compelling of all.
 
Through Neven, Sacco tells the story of the warlords and gangsters who ran the country during the war, but all the time he - and the reader - never know whether Neven is telling the truth.

"The tightly wound, humane and suspenseful non-fiction graphic novella employs visual devices from the best traditions of film noir. Sacco's finely wrought, expressively rendered black and white drawings perfectly capture the emotional character of Sarajevo and the people who struggle to live there. This superlative and important story is easily one of the bets comics non-fiction works of the year."
