Vesna Maric

Vesna Maric left Bosnia at the start of war and travelled by coach to Penrith. This book is her funny and readable memoir of that experience. Maric is sharp on the presumptions volunteers make about refugees. She tells about her love affair with a local lad and her eventual moves to Exeter and Hull. She also interweaves stories from other refugees.
