Product Description

In this darkly comic satire set during the Bosnian War, a frustrated author desperately seeking something original to write about relocates from London to Sarajevo to join the Serbian army with the intention of writing about his experiences as a sniper in the war. Excited by the violence of war, where his job is to kill civilians in the besieged city, and fascinated by his comrades in arms, Milan Zorec finds time to reflect on the power of words and the absurdities of modern culture and warfare. As Zorec sees the savagery and madness of those around him, he barely glimpses his own journey from dreamer to monster. Alternating between London and Sarajevo, this chilling novel presents readers with an unconventional perspective on war crimes told from the viewpoint of an antihero who is not only reprehensible but also intelligent, eloquent, amusing, and even sympathetic.
