Logavina Street (Used Hardcover) - Barbara Demick
In the last decade of the 20th century, in a capital city in Europe, the unimaginable is happening.
Take a walk down Sarajevo's Logavina Street with Barbara Demick, author of the prize-winning Nothing to Ordinary Lives in North Korea. Demick spent much of 1993 through 1995 on one street in the Bosnian capital with a front-row seat as a country was torn apart by ethnic warfare and a modern city was held under siege. She watched and recorded as neighbors, Muslim, Serb and Croat, tried to keep their society intact against the forces of intolerance. In Logavina Life and Death in a Sarajevo Neighborhood, meet a teenager whose parents were killed by a mortar shell in front of her, a dentist debating whether to emigrate to America, a besotted husband separated from his wife by war, obsessing about her lipstick color. Demick's coverage of the Bosnian war won the Robert F. Kennedy award for international reporting, the Polk award for international reporting and was a finalist for the Pulitzer.
