about

“A tragic portrait . . . presented with sympathy and frequently with humor . . . [of] a disparate people who were never united except by their resentment of a foreign conqueror.” – Atlantic Monthly

In The Impossible Country, Brian Hall relates his encounters with Serbs, Croats, and Muslims— “real people, likeable people” who are now overcome with suspicion and anxiety about one another. Hall takes the standard explanations, the pundits’ predictions, and the evening news footage and inverts our perceptions of the country, its politics, its history, and its seemingly insoluble animosities.

From Our Editors

Hall relates his encounters with Serbs, Croats, and Muslims, "real people, likeable people" who are now overcome with suspicions and anxiety about one another. Hall takes the standard explanations and inverts our perceptions of the country. What emerges is a portrait of a country that possibly should never have been, and is in the process of insuring that it will never be again
