Only the Nails Remain: Scenes from the Balkan Wars is a chronicle of poet and critic Christopher Merrill ''s ten war-time journeys to the Balkans from the years 1992 through 1996. At once a travelogue, a book of war reportage, and a biography of the imagination under siege, this beautifully written and personal narrative takes the reader along on the author ''s journeys to all the provinces and republics of the former Yugoslavia and surrounding countries. This literary meditation on war is a fascinating portrait of the poetry, politics and the people of the Balkans which will provide insight into the past, present, and future of those war-torn lands.
From the Publisher:
Combining history, geography, and political analysis, the author chronicles his personal experiences in the war torn Balkans.Combining history, geography, and political analysis, the author chronicles his personal experiences in the war torn Balkans
