July - The Cellist of Sarajevo

We're meeting on the 4th July to discuss The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway.

"Sarajevo, in the 1990s, is a hellish place. The ongoing war devours human life, tears families apart and transforms even banal routines, such as acquiring water, into life-threatening expeditions. Day after day, a cellist stations himself in the midst of the devastation, defying the ever-present snipers to play tributes to victims of a massacre."
