Today, I read a provocative article about Steven Galloway's The Cellist of Sarajevo by Dishan Boange for The Nation titled Fictionalising histories of war. He writes about the ethnology-religious aspects of the siege of Sarajevo, yet Galloway never mentions who keeps the Sarajevans under siege other than "the men on the hills." Why does the author chose to do so and at the same time chose to center the novel on a true person, Vedran Smailovic. Let me know what you think.
I'm an expert amateur or maybe an amateur expert.
