Read Miss Ex-Yugoslavia.
If there was only one phrase I could say about this book, that would be it – read it!
I loved the book so much I was ready to send the copies to everybody I knew. Unfortunately, most people I know either don’t read English, or don’t read at all. So I created this blog to say it to the world – read Miss Ex-Yugoslavia!
Read it, even if you have no idea about Yugoslavia, or any other socialist country, or what it feels like to be a bearer of two different cultures. In fact, read it exactly for this reason. The book will show you something new. And isn’t it the primary treasure of books, to let you experience what you otherwise would have never experienced?
Read it because it’s honest and clear, like anything that is true art. Miss Ex-Yugoslavia will teach you more about history, people and wars than all school books combined.
The book will make you laugh and cry, aloud and alone. And how often does this happen nowadays?
Finally, if you were born in a socialist country, if you know what it is like to acquire a new different culture, if you know what it feels like when different truths contradict each other and are still equally real, this book is definitely for you. You will laugh, you will cry, and you will reconnect with times and spaces that you considered long lost. This book will not just be an exciting read but a journey.
My heartfelt thanks to the author Sofija Stefanovic for this amazing experience!
