Aleksandar Hemon - My Parents: An Introduction / This Does Not Belong to You

Upcoming Event
Saturday, June 15, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

The author of three collections of short fiction, two novels, and a book of personal essays, Sarajevo-born Hemon has kept readers laughing and crying since 1995 with his crackling prose, dark wit, and intimate details of life as an immigrant. In his two new works—published back to back in one volume—he delves deeper into his own and his family’s experience of war and displacement. My Parents is a vivid chronicle of his parents’ flight from Sarajevo to Canada that doubles as a rich portrait of Hemon’s homeland. This Does Not Belong to You complements the first book’s close focus with a wide-ranging series of memories and profiles, each a gem of insight and close observation.
