The author gives an insight into the parts of the Yugoslavian war that the papers don't tell us. In a series of stories, she describes the ordinary people's response to this situation - how it destroys everyday lives, disrupts relationships and turns close friends into bitter enemies. She also wonders if we ourselves are all responsible for allowing this war to start. The collection is filled with stories about her daughter, her friends, about the day her father frightened her with his World War II pistol and about her journey on the Balkan Express which heads southwards from the comparative sanity of Vienna into the heart of the Yugoslavian conflict. The author also wrote "Holograms of Fear" and "How We Survived Communism and Even Laughed".
