Like Eating a Stone: Surviving the Past in Bosnia
During four years of the war in Bosnia, over 100,000 people lost their lives. But it was months, even years, before the mass graves started to yield up their dead and the process of identification, burial and mourning could begin. For many, the searching and the grieving continues to this day.
"Tochman is a man of few words. His lapidary style, narrating the atrocities of war and its fallout, is all the more powerful for its restraint: outrage speaks terribly for itself, needs no hype, no colour. "
"This short, sparce book has an overwhelming power: Tochman focuses on the people: the victims and the survivors of war... They live and breathe even as we read, although for some of them life itself is now a kind of living death. Read this incredible book to learn how thin is the veneer of civilisation."Translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones.
