US Review of Goran Simic's Yesterday's People

Also on Three Percent, a review of Goran Simic's important collection of short fiction, Yesterday's People. Here's a taste:

In Yesterday’s People, Goran Simić looks at war, and its aftermath, from the ground level. His characters are everyday people who rarely seek to understand, and have no power to influence, the larger forces that have trapped them, either in the war-torn present or long after the war has ended and they have moved halfway around the globe; they’re too busy trying to make sense of their own shattered lives.

The whole review can be found here:

we can expect a new collection of Simic poetry in the next 12 months.
