Sarajevo, in the 1990s, is a hellish place. The ongoing war devours human life, tears families apart and transforms even banal routines, such as acquiring water, into life-threatening expeditions. Day after day, a cellist stations himself in the midst of the devastation, defying the ever-present snipers to play tributes to victims of a massacre. A true story of a cellist's resistance helps to form this pivotal event in Steven Galloway's extraordinary novel. Against this, the author touchingly describes three ordinary townspeople and their efforts to retain their humanity, sanity and autonomy as war takes hold of their lives. This bestselling novel is immediate, vivid and deeply affecting on audiobook, fully immersing the listener in the havoc of war.

    " Excellent character development in such a short book. Three people's stories linked by the shared experience of Sarajevo under siege. Horrible and fascinating all at the same time. "

    " Simple beautiful language about the war in Sarajevo. his insights into how average people survive and the thoughts they have as they are continually aware of snipers in the hills around their city. I kept cringing thinking 'this is where he's going to be shot' "
