Product Description

Review

“Nadler’s book is a stroke of originality among the legion of journalists’ memoirs of the Balkan wars. In terms of portraying the impact of ethnic division on individual human lives, there is little better to be read on any conflict, not only the former Yugoslavia.” -- Neil Barnett, correspondent for Jane’s Defence Weekly

Format: Hardcover
John Nadler's exploration into Kosovo's civil war is predicated on a star-crossed secret romance between a young Albanian Kosovar and his Serbian lover. As a war correspondent for Southam News, Nadler encounters Jorg, a Kosovar refugee, and agrees to help him reunite with Sofia, his Serbian girlfriend and possibly the daughter of the Serbian para-military leader responsible for the murder of Jorg's father. Nadler's journey through Serbia and Kosovo in search of Sofia becomes a metaphor for all that was won and lost in seven years of Balkan conflict. With the events of September 11 and the war in Iraq, many Westerners have forgotten the horrors of the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. Nadler's portrayal of the trials of both Serbs and Albanians during and after the Kosovo conflict is a sensitive and engaging analysis of war and its human consequences.

"Sofia" takes us through a little-known terrain and an obscene war that the West still doesn't understand. While other authors would use this setting for sensationalism, Nadler has the experience (see above) and knowledge to take us through a real place, with intelligence and humanity. What makes this book so wonderful is that it's obvious Nadler loves this land, and with this exceptional Romeo & Juliet story he uncovered, he has the means to show you why.
