Labeled a traitor by nationalist Serbians because she opposes the war in Kosovo, a dissident journalist chronicles the intimate details that haunt her daily life. Amidst the bombardment, however, hope persists: neighbors braving air attacks to commune at midnight Easter service; young women performing ballet recitals despite all threats of danger; strangers gathered for safety, waiting for the next NATO bomb to strike. The author takes us beyond the sound bites of the nightly news by offering a firsthand account of daily life in a war zone. The Diary of a Political Idiot was named a PEN selection for 2000 and has been simultaneously published in 11 languages.
