TLC book club 2/10; Haunting story about the Bosnian civil war in the 1990s, centering around the lives of just 4 people in the city: the cellist who chooses to play for 22 days in the sights of snipers in the bombed out area where 22 people died waiting for bread; Dragon - a 64 yo breadmaker who has sent his family away; Kagan - a younger man who every 4 days treks in the sights of sniper fire to get water for his family, and Arrow - a young girl turned sniper, who chooses her own targets and protects the cellist from snipers during his 22 days....then lets herself be killed rather than be told to kill civilians
A wishlist book - Enjoy!
