Description

Love and Obstacles is a collection of short stories by Aleksandar Hemon, in this app you will be able to read a short story from the collection, listen to a short audio story read by Aleksandar Hemon and watch an animation that brings the stories to life.

Love and Obstacles is about coming of age and the difficulties of growing up - which is never easy. But in a Communist yet cosmopolitan country, one which falls apart and leaves you spinning towards a new and overwhelming life abroad, the obstacles are many and various. Linked by a young narrator these exhilarating stories are shot through with deadpan humour and heartbreaking truth, found in the most surprising of places. This will appeal to anyone who has read and loved Alice Munro, J. M. Coetzee, Jonathan Franzen and David Nicholls. Suitable from 16yrs +

About Aleksandar Hemon:

Aleksandar Hemon was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, where he lived reasonably successfully until he ended up in Chicago in 1992. He loved the damned city of Sarajevo and still does, which in no way precludes his love of Chicago. Upon his arrival in the US of A, he had all kinds of lousy jobs, including, but not limited to, canvassing for Greenpeace and teaching English as a Second Language to the people who suddenly found their First Language nearly perfectly useless. Mainly out of well-studied despair, he crossed into writing fiction in English sometime in 1995, and now his stories and writings have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TriQuarterly, Ploughshares, The Baffler, Granta, Esquire, The Paris Review etc and in the Best American Short Stories 1999, 2000 and 2006. He is the author of The Question of Bruno (2000), Nowhere Man (2002), and The Lazarus Project (2008) which was a finalist for the National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award.

Hemon’s books have been published in twenty different languages (rather than twenty identical languages). He writes a column in Bosnian, under the unfortunate title Hemonwood, for the Sarajevo magazine BH Dani, and selections of those columns have been published in Bosnia. He frequently crosses borders, which he hates, even though he is fully legal now.
