ogavina Street is a fascinating account of life in Sarajevo following the outbreak of war in the former Yugoslavia. Through the tales of ordinary citizens—Muslim, Christian, Serbian, and Croatians— who describe their frightening struggles and day-to-day lives in wartime, award-winning journalist Barbara Demick brings to life the story of the Bosnian War and the three-and-a-half-year siege of Sarajevo. Demick’s Sarajevo reporting won the George Polk Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer. With a new Introduction, final chapter, and Epilogue by the author, this new edition of Logavina Street commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Siege of Sarajevo, a devastating, brutal turning point in a war few Americans, to this day, fully understand.

Praise for Logavina Street:
“Brilliantly captures the sense of civilian Sarajevo heroism— its pluck, irony, stoicism. . . . Focusing on one Sarajevo street, Demick is able to evoke the reality of life in the city with accuracy and nuance.” —David Rieff, Philadelphia Inquirer
