Bluebird: A Memoir
Vesna Maric was a typical sixteen year old when the Bosnian war started. As school broke up, shelling began. Snipers appeared in the cities and suddenly a trip to a cafe or an illicit cigarette became dangerous, impossible things. Maric and her sister fled to Britain.
"A wonderful, bittersweet memoir about what life is like when you are what Vesna Maric calls "that half-pitied, half-feared thing" - a refugee."
"Maric is an exquisite, careful writer. Her sparse newcomer's memoir skewers Britain.. 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."
