Product Details


“Pensive, engrossing … The author’s sensitive, searching prose makes it feel as though readers are eavesdropping on her thoughts, making every page highly personal and captivating…. An impressive portrait of a country in a tumultuous time but also of a young woman in an equally tumultuous time, eventually heading home with eyes open to the absolute need for equality for women, other races, and for the poor and disadvantaged.” — Eloise Kinney, Booklist (starred review)

“Surya Green’s fascinating book narrates two journeys undertaken simultaneously. . . . It is often said that travel broadens the mind. In Green’s case, immersion in Tito’s Yugoslavia served to deepen as well as broaden her knowledge of herself, and the social orders of both Yugoslavia and her American homeland.” — Henry Breitrose, Stanford University 

“An important testament. I have not before read an account of the former Yugoslavia made so plain.” — John Grierson, pioneering documentary filmmaker
