Kako vojnik popravlja gramofon - Sasa Stanisic (How A Soldier Repairs His Gramophone)

Stanisic portrays the life of a boy who experiences the Bosnian War and who finds the secret to survival in language and stories.
For Aleksandar Krsmanovic, Grandpa Slavko’s stories endow life in Višegrad with a kaleidoscopic brilliance. Neighbors, friends, and family past and present take on a mythic quality. So when his grandfather dies suddenly, Aleksandar promises to carry on the tradition. But then soldiers invade Višegrad — a town previously unconscious of racial and religious differences — and suddenly his priority change - 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.

Dimensions: 20cm, 299 pages, paperback, Bosnian.
