"S. could possibly be one of many most powerful books approximately battle you'll ever learn. . . .The writing is taut, specified, and masterful."
Set in 1992, in the course of the top of the Bosnian battle, S. finds essentially the most frightening points of any battle: the rape and torture of civilian ladies via occupying forces. S. is the tale of a Bosnian lady in exile who has simply given beginning to an undesirable child—one and not using a state, a reputation, a father, or a language. Its delivery purely reminds her of a fair extra grueling event: being many times raped by means of Serbian infantrymen within the "women's room" of a jail camp. via a sequence of flashbacks, S. relives the unspeakable crimes she has persisted, and in telling her story—timely, surprisingly compelling, and eventually approximately survival—depicts the darkest part of human nature in the course of wartime.
