Description - The Question of Bruno by Aleksandar Hemon

'You will go a long way to find anything better than this' Edward Docx

'There is simply more history and more drama in Hemon's stories than in a shelf and a half of the usual dayglo Anglo-American entertainment' Guardian

The Question of Bruno is an elegy for the vanished Yugoslavia and a journey through the intertwined history of a family and a nation, written in prose of unparalleled daring, invention and wit.

'Amazing. The personal fall-out of political failure has never been so searing' Time Out

'Like Nabokov, Hemon writes with the startling peeled vision of the outsider, weighing words as if for the first time; he shares with Kundera an ability to find grace and humour in the bleakest of circumstances' Observer

'A storyteller, funny and sad in equal measure, and always entertaining' Scotland on Sunday

The Question of Bruno is an elegy for the vanished Yugoslavia and a journey through the intertwined history of a family and a nation, written in prose of unparalleled daring, invention and wit.
