A beautifully rendered reevaluation of a previously misunderstood chapter in the history of immigration to America--which is to say, in the history of America itself--Hemon''s work describes and defines what it means to be a new citizen in this land--"Miami Herald."
A Bosnian immigrant living in the U.S. and his photographer girlfriend travel to the Balkans in a literary attempt to revive the life of an early-20th-century Jew named Lazarus Averbuch, who moved to Chicago, became suspected of being an anarchist, and was shot by the police. The parallel stories of the two men, both displaced from their homelands, and from themselves, unfold gracefully in Aleksandar Hemon's THE LAZARUS PROJECT, which was selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2008, by Publishers Weekly as a Best Book of 2008, and as a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award in Fiction.
Author Bio
Aleksandar Hemon
Bosnian writer Aleksander Hemon grew up in Sarajevo and received a degree in English literature. Afterwards he worked in radio and journalism. While Hemon was on a cultural exchange program to Chicago in 1992, the Bosnian War broke out, forcing Hemon to remain in the United States. Though he knew rudimentary English, he improved his vocabulary by looking up the words in the novels of Nabokov, and his beautiful mastery of English as a second language would later draw comparisons to both Nabokov and Joseph Conrad. In 1995 Hemon's short stories began appearing in The New Yorker, followed by the publication of his acclaimed novels NOWHERE MAN and THE LAZARUS PROJECT, which both deal with issues of immigration, war, language, and history. In 2004 Hemon was awarded a MacArthur "Genius Grant."


"THE LAZARUS PROJECT is a remarkable, and remarkably entertaining, chronicle of loss and hopelessness and cruelty propelled by an eloquent, irritable existential unease. It is, against all odds, full of humor and full of jokes. It is, at the same time, inexpressibly sad." - Cathleen Schine 05/25/2008
