As their family home has been destroyed, they are currently living in the National Museum, of which her father is the Director.

This book takes place during the Balkans wars during the early 1990’s, in a Sarajevo under siege, but despite that is pretty funny and entertaining. The first person narrator is Maja, a teenage girl who can’t decide if she’s keeping a diary or writing a novel. More than anything, this book reminded me of I Capture the Castle in terms of voice. Maja is observant and sarcastic and, as in I Capture the Castle, she describes the lives of her quirky family residing in an odd place. Lodgers' is a hilarious, unsentimental report from the front lines of the Balkan wars of the 1990s. All of the folly and the horror of that time are revealed in the sarcastic report of the novel's teenage would-be authoress.

Published as the siege of Sarajevo ended, Lodgers is a hilarious, unsentimental report from the front lines of the Balkan wars of the 1990s.

A comic novel of war from a teenager's point-of-viewPublished as the siege of Sarajevo ended, Lodgers is a hilarious, unsentimental report from the front lines of the Balkan wars of the 1990s. Detergent mixed with flour, museum relics sold to U.N. peacekeepers, the magic power of laminated accreditation-all of the folly and the horror of that time are revealed in the sarcastic report of the novel's teenage would-be authoress.Maja lives in the basement of a Sarajevo museum, enduring with equal annoyance Serb artillery and vegetarian meals that taste like fried sponge. Her father, the museum director, zealously guards the treasures upstairs while their aged co-lodger Julio plots to trade them away. Maja's mother copes with yoga while dour stepbrother Davor endures the endless crying and cravings of his pregnant wife. Floating amidst it all is Maja's grandmother, blind and deaf, yet drawn to any conversation involving food.Need and crisis propel Maja and her companions from one humorous situation to another. Yet her pitch-perfect gallows humor makes it clear that the brutalities of war penetrate these small moments of life-and even the self-centeredness of a teenaged girl. A best seller in the Balkans and widely translated in Europe, Lodgers is an uncompromising novel about a modern tragedy.
