From Library Journal
The literature of outrage continues to pour forth from Bosnia and the rest of the former Yugoslavia. These two new books offer poignant personal essays on the destruction of a civilized and once-hopeful region. Debeljak, an important Slovenian poet, combines philosophical detachment and eyewitness experience in his analysis of the Yugoslavian tragedy. He recalls a time of hope and change in the early 1980s but now holds little hope for rebirth of multiculturalism and tolerance in his country. Karahasan`s memoir of life inside the doomed city of Sarajevo is an extraordinarily powerful appeal to the Western world. Using a technique similar to that of Zlato Dizdarevic in Sarajevo: A War Journal (LJ 12/93), Karahasan, a Bosnian Muslim playwright, presents a series of unforgettable vignettes of daily life, interwoven with historical commentary. He, too, mourns the loss of tolerance and pluralism in his land. In an afterword, Slavenka Drakuli`c (Balkan Express, LJ 4/15/93) compares his approach to Primo Levi`s writings on the Holocaust. Both books are highly recommended for public and academic libraries.

From Publishers Weekly
`I come from a destroyed country,` writes Karahasan, a Bosnian Muslim, in this collection of short pieces that range from elegiac meditations on Sarajevo to reflections on adjusting to life with snipers and shelling. Although translated with a clunkiness that is sadly characteristic of many Eastern European works published here, Karahasan`s account is often quietly devastating. Whether he is sketching the 500-year history of Sarajevo or describing the Hotel Europa-which he calls the `physical and semantic center` of the city, the nexus where the city`s Turkish and Austro-Hungarian sectors meet-his observations are precise and compelling. Not convincing, however, is the lengthy `Literature and War,` in which Karahsan claims that `bad literature, or misuse of the literary craft, is responsible` for the destruction of his country. In `An Argument with a Frenchman,` the transcendental-minded Karahasan describes a frustrating meeting with a more practical-minded French visitor. In Karahasan`s more detached and elliptical analytical forays, even the most interested readers may sympathize with the Frenchman, unable to understand the Karahasan`s plight or that of his country.

From Kirkus Reviews
This firsthand account of the war in Bosnia is made all the more compelling by the tone, at once lyrical and detached, taken by its author. Karahasan concentrates on the city of Sarajevo and the tragedy that such a cosmopolitan, multicultural city should be forced to disband, its vibrant subcultures trickling out under pressure of Serbian guns. As dean of the Academy of Theatrical Arts at the University of Sarajevo, the author experienced the siege and shelling of his city. Yet he has chosen not to write a conventional memoir of the horrors of war. In fact, throughout this book (his first available in English), he writes about the futility of offering conventional witness and the inability or unwillingness of the West to understand or pay attention to the suffering of Bosnia. Instead, he analyzes the city itself, "enclosed and isolated from the world, so to speak, cut off from everything external and turned wholly toward itself." He sees the city`s layout and all of its constituent elements--architecture, demographics, even cuisine--as a series of tensions between openness and closure, an interplay of opposition and reflection, of internal and external. He also offers an impassioned essay on the "misuse" of literature to promote racial hatred and fuel the atrocities such as those committed against the Bosnian people. But the book is, predictably, most compelling when it shows the people of Sarajevo trying to maintain some shred of normalcy while the city is vivisected by the Serbs. Karahasan coolly reports on how his theater students react to the disruption of their studies, how he is prevented from attending a founding meeting of the Bosnian PEN Center. The book closes with a moving exchange of letters between Karahasan, who is in exile in Austria, and his wife in Sarajevo, followed by a typically incisive essay by Slavenka Drakuli (The Balkan Express), comparing Karahasan`s tone to that of Primo Levi in Survival in Auschwitz. An excellent addition to the growing shelf of books on the ravaging of Bosnia. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
“Vanjski promatrači bosanske drame, kao i oni koji su u njoj neposredno sudjelovali, zgroženi i nemoćni pred mučeništvom Sarajeva i genocidom nad jednim narodom čija se jedina pogreška sastojala u pokušaju obrane demokratskog ideala, poštovanja i tolerancije, tih temeljnih vrijednosti naših društava – u ovoj kratkoj, ali uvjerljivoj knjizi Dževada Karahasana, pronići će uzaludno traženi ključ zagonetke koja glasi: odakle toliko divljačke tvrdoglavosti u rušenju jednog grada i civilizacijskog modela koji taj grad predstavlja.”
