Miris kiše na Balkanu - Gordana Kuic (The Scent of Rain in...)


The Scent of Rain in the Balkans became an instant bestseller.

The leading characters are the five courageous Salom sisters whose struggle to fulfill personal desires and aspirations run contrary to the strict conventions of the multicultural and religious societies - Bosnian Jew, Muslim, Serbian Orthodox,and Catholic - of the time, living side by side in the small town of Sarajevo.

A ballet based on the novel premiered on the Sarajevo National Opera stage in 1991. The Scent of Rain in the Balkans has also been adapted to both television and the theater.
