NEW - This diary is set at the outbreak of the Bosnian war. Mladen Vuksanovic, an award-winning journalist, records here the unfolding of events. The author lived in the ski resort of Pale, above Sarajevo. When the savage assault by Radovan Karadzic was launched on the city in April 1992, Vuksanovic - refusing to collaborate - became a prisoner in his own home; he was cut off from all family and friends. In this book he expressed his terror and disgust of the ruler during the 100 days of Karadzic's rule, as he looted, murdered, and the other horrors of war. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall View more info

This true story begins "Half my life ago, I killed a girl. " An outing in his father's car resulted in the death of a classmate and the beginning of a different, darker life for the author.

He writes a nakedly honest, ultimately hopeful examination of guilt, responsibility, and living with the past.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall View more info

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR - This is a journal of Dr. James Judge, who vowed early in his career to be a different kind of doctor than his medical training had taught him to be.
