';A brilliant debut novel' about a young Bosnian War refugee who finds the secret to survival in language and stories (Los Angeles Times). For Aleksandar Krsmanovic, Grandpa Slavko's stories endow life in Viegrad with a kaleidoscopic brilliance. Neighbors, friends, and family past and present take on a mythic quality; the River Drina courses through town like the pulse of life itself. So when his grandfather dies suddenly, Aleksandar promises to carry on the tradition. But then soldiers invade Viegrada town previously unconscious of racial and religious dividesand it's no longer important that Aleksandar is the best magician in the nonaligned states; suddenly it is important to have the right last name and to convince the soldiers that Asija, the Muslim girl who turns up in his apartment building, is his sister. Alive with the magic of childhood, the surreality of war and exile, and the power of language, every page of this glittering novel thrums with the joy of storytelling. ';Wildly inventive.' San Francisco Chronicle ';Poignant and hauntingly beautiful.' The Village Voice ';A funny, heartbreaking, beautifully written novel.' The Seattle Times
