Clube do Livro: Diplowife - Mês 03




"Entangled in Yugoslavia - an Outsider's Memoir is a compelling combination of personal memoir as well as a portrait of a collapsing society. The author is a foreign service wife returning to Belgrade - the scene of a previous posting- to find that the society she had known as a peaceful, stable place under socialism, was caught up in political upheaval. This is an objective account relying on the testimonies of people coming from different national and class groups. The author travelled extensively in all the republics of the former Yugoslavia and became heavily involved in the psychological turmoil taking place, only to find release by participation in the international relief effort, working for Unicef to deliver supplies to war-torn areas."
