The Hired Man | Aminatta Forna
Pickpick

I was 16 when Serbia was involved in a civil war so I don't remember much about it. I remember the mass graves and genocide from the news. After reading this book, I still don't know what cultures were involved. Duro's past and his feud with neighbors is intriguing. I'm sort of ashamed that I don't know this history of former Yugoslavia. I remember reading Zlata's Diary. Can anyone recommend others from this time period - fiction or nonfiction?

Purpleness This one is pretty good; I read it for Croatia last year in the #passportlitsy challenge (edited) 5mo
Purpleness This one is also good; it‘s very poetic, and touches on the history in a more removed way. 5mo
Butterfinger Thank you @Purpleness - I read The Hired Man for the #AroundtheWorld2019 challenge. I think taleaway.com is promoting it. I can't remember where I got my list of countries. I can't wait to read both of your suggestions. 5mo
