Sarajevo Marlboro is Miljenko Jergovic’s remarkable début collection of stories. A child of Sarajevo, Jergovic remained in the city throughout the war. A dazzling storyteller, he brings a profoundly human, razor-sharp understanding of the fate of the city’s young Muslims, Croats, and Serbs with a subterranean humor and profoundly personal vision, their offbeat lives and daily dramas in the foreground, the killing zone in the background. Penguin UK released Stela Tomasevic’s stunning translation of the work in England in 1997.
