About this Event:

Novelist Aleksandar Hemon talks about his first work of non-fiction, The Book of My Lives, a personal memoir that follows his life from the days of playing street soccer in his home city of Sarajevo, to war in the Balkans, a flight from Sarajevo, and a new life in Chicago. The work is much more than a memoir, it is about a love for two cities, the bonds of family, and an exhortation to go out and play soccer.

Hemon, who now lives in Chicago is author of a number of novels including The Lazarus Project, which was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Here he talks to BBC Radio Oxford broadcaster Bill Heine.
