Description
Written with an innocence and desperation that will move readers of all ages, this international best-seller has touched the conscience of the world. Zlata's Diary stands out as a poignant reminder that war exacts a devastating toll on everyone-including children. Zlata Filipovic' began her diary just months before her 11th birthday in 1991. Peace still reigned in her hometown of Sarajevo, where she lived the carefree life of an innocent schoolgirl. But this life was suddenly shattered in 1992 when gunfire shook through the hills, and the streets of Sarajevo became the barbaric battlegrounds of the Bosnian war. As the onslaught of the war steadily invades her life, Zlata loses loved ones, endures months without decent food or running water, and spends weeks confined to her house as shells rain on the devastated city. Sustained by indomitable courage, she struggles to preserve the remains of her former existence. She learns to play the piano, celebrates special occasions with her closely-knit family-and faithfully records everything in this extraordinary diary.

      • content: Eleven-year-old Zlata Filipovic describes her life in Sarajevo as the clouds of war build, advance and consume her city. The diary is a powerful and moving document and has been released in print and audio simultaneously. Dorota Puzio, a native of Poland, reads with a soft Eastern European accent and the emotional intensity that the diary requires. Her clear pronunciation helps the listener with unfamiliar names. She captures the growth Zlata experiences as she leaves her protected childhood behind and begins to live the day-to-day hardship and deprivation of a city under siege. Zlata's Diary is a poignant plea for peace and a testament to the futility and waste of war. This sensitive production allows the reader to hear a young girl who cries out for peace. L.R.S.

        Starred review from January 31, 1994
        A graphic firsthand look at the war in Sarajevo by a Croatian girl whose personal world has collapsed, this vivid, sensitive diary sounds an urgent and compelling appeal for peace. Filipovic begins her precocious journal in autumn 1991 as a contented 10-year-old preoccupied with piano and tennis lessons and saturated with American movies, TV shows, books and rock music. Soon the bombs start falling; her friends are killed by shrapnel or snipers' bullets; her family's country house burns down, and they subsist on UN food packages, without gas, electricity or water, as thousands of Sarajevans die. Filipovic, whose circle of friends included Serbs, Croats and Muslims, blames the former Yugoslavia's politicians for dividing ethnic groups and playing hell with people's lives. She and her parents escaped to Paris, and her diary, originally published in Croat by UNICEF, was reissued in France and has already been much written about in the U.S. Photos not seen by PW. 200,000 first printing; film rights to Universal; first serial to Newsweek; author tour

      • content: Eleven-year-old Zlata, growing up in the beautiful city of Sarajevo, adores her school, her friends, pizza, rock music and holidays. Her lively interests are meticulously recorded in her diary. Then, in 1992, before her twelfth birthday, life becomes the long, dreary struggle of the Bosnian war. In portraying the young diarist, Moore perfectly captures each nuance of feeling: her exuberance, pity or rage. Grieving for her stolen childhood, Zlata becomes intensely present in this flawless reading. The Bosnian girl has much to say to the world, and Moore gives her convincing voice. We would do well to listen. S.B.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
