How the Soldier repairs the Gramophone

When the civil war destroys his home in Bosnia in the 1990s, the young Alexandar flees with his parents to the West. Alexandar conquers the foreign land of Germany with his restless curiosity, and he enthusiastically tells fantastic stories about his large family in the small Visegrad. Through his story telling, Alexandar is able to assuage his anxieties as well as bring back the “time when everything was good”.

 

With How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone, Sasa Stanisic has written an exuberant and extravagant burlesque tragi-comedy novel about the collapse of Bosnia and of German exile, of homeland and of life in a foreign country.
