Read full description of the books Lodgers:During the mid to late 1990s teenage diaries of the siege of Sarajevo in 1992 & 1993 were a minor publishing industry in themselves. Velickovic's slightly cynical, often extremely sarcastic, usually naive-in-a-good-way narrator, Maja, struggles with the problem of whether she is writing a novel in diary form or a diary in novel form. I'm not sure what a teenage Muslim would sound like if she was narrating a siege – but Maja is plausible: she casts a vaguely cynical and thoroughly ironic eye over the hotch-potch of people living in the national Museum, where her father is Director, under a state of siege, with the war always there but not quite. Many of the events are absurd, which only serves to make them believable. The narrative stumbles in places, but more often that is because of Maja's naivety. All in all, a novel as diary or diary as novel that outshines many of the teenage diaries of the time.
