cellist of saravejoDuring the siege of Sarajevo in the 1990's, a cellist plays in the street at 4:00 pm everyday for 22 days to commemorate the lives of 22 people killed in a mortar shell blast.

The Cellist of Sarajevo uses this true story as a backdrop to tell the story of several people caught up in the Bosnian War, including a baker and a young female sniper who wages her own war with the men occupying the hill above their city.

A beautifully written and haunting novel, it makes you truly feel the fear, suffering and hopelessness of living in a city under siege, where snipers hiding in the hills are killing off civilians one by one.The never ending siege and constant risk of death create a constant tension, making it a page-turner.   Winner of the Globe and Mail Best Book for 2009.
