“Hemon’s writing sometimes reminds one of Nabokov’s…yet the feat of his invention exceeds the Russian’s” —The New Yorker

Bosnian-American writer Aleksandar Hemon is the author of The Lazarus Project, which was a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award, and three collections of short stories: The Question of Bruno; Nowhere Man, a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; and Love and Obstacles, a series of stories about coming of age in Communist Sarajevo.
