This novel, the first volume in Nobel Prize winner Andric's Bosnian trilogy, debuted in 1963. LJ 's reviewer heaped upon it high praise, finding it "rich with humanity and the humor that comes with wisdom" ( LJ 11/1/63). The plot explores the lives of the inhabitants of the city of Travnik in the early years of the 19th century. With Bosnia much in the news these days, this remains "an essential addition for all fiction collections."
