Family Stories, by Biljana Srbljanovic
"If it gets really touch and go, we can always throw the dog on the grill."
In the wreckage of a bombed-out playground, four children are caught playing house; reflected in the funhouse mirror of their game is a thrilling and devastating allegory of a post-war society. A brilliant marriage of slapstick and tragedy, Family Stories examines the fear that results from living in a society without free media or civil liberties.
Between the laughter and horror lies a haunting and intensely shocking portrait of the cruelties and atrocities of a country at war with itself.
