Product description

Review

Sacco has produced a work that improbably manages to combine rare insight into what the war in Bosnia felt like on the ground with a mature and nuanced political and historical understanding of the conflict... Of the myriad books that have appeared about Bosnia, few have told the truth more bravely than Sacco. He is an immense talent, from whom we will hear a great deal more. -- David Rieff, New York Times Book Review

Harrowing and bleakly humorous, Sacco's account of life during the Balkan conflict is a timeless portrait of ordinary people caught in desperate circumstances. It's also a work of genius in an unlikely genre: journalism in comic book form., Utne Reader

Like Art Spiegelman's Maus, Sacco's book juxtaposes the pop style of comics with human tragedy, making the brutality of war all the more jarring., Time

Can comics do hard-hitting journalism? That’s the question asked – and answered – by this wonderful piece of long-form reporting, World of Cruising

Book Description

The first UK publication of Joe Sacco's classic, groundbreaking work of comics journalism with a foreword by Christopher Hitchens.
