From the beloved, award-winning, bestselling author of The Cellist of Sarajevo, a beautiful, suspense-filled novel As a young Romany boy in Transylvania in the early years of the twentieth century, Salvo Usari's mother and father are killed in a tragic fire. Forced to flee his village, leaving his brother and sister behind him, Salvo embarks on a lifetime's odyssey that takes him through the dark forests of his homeland, to the bustling streets of Budapest - where he learns the skills of a wire-walker - and eventually to the United States. There he is reunited with his family, finds fame, and eventually risks everything to perform one final - death-defying - high wire act, as he walks between the twin towers of the World Trade Center...

The Cellist of Sarajevo

The Cellist of Sarajevo

Author: Steven Galloway Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 10/10/2009

Sarajevo, in the 1990s, is a hellish place. The ongoing war devours human life, tears families apart and transforms even banal routines, such as acquiring water, into life-threatening expeditions. Day after day, a cellist stations himself in the midst of the devastation, defying the ever-present snipers to play tributes to victims of a massacre. This true story of a cellist's resistance is the pivot of Steven Galloway's extraordinary novel. Against this, Galloway touchingly describes three ordinary townspeople and their efforts to retain their humanity, sanity and autonomy as war takes hold of their lives. This bestselling novel is immediate, vivid and deeply affecting on audiobook, fully immersing the listener in the havoc of war.
