"S. might be one of many most powerful books approximately warfare you are going to ever learn. . . .The writing is taut, distinct, and masterful."
Set in 1992, in the course of the peak of the Bosnian battle, S. unearths the most scary features of any conflict: the rape and torture of civilian ladies through occupying forces. S. is the tale of a Bosnian lady in exile who has simply given beginning to an undesirable child—one with no kingdom, a reputation, a father, or a language. Its beginning in simple terms reminds her of a fair extra grueling event: being many times raped through Serbian squaddies within the "women's room" of a jail camp. via a sequence of flashbacks, S. relives the unspeakable crimes she has continued, and in telling her story—timely, surprisingly compelling, and finally approximately survival—depicts the darkest facet of human nature in the course of wartime.
