From the publisher

'Some of the richest delights in contemporary fiction, as well as some of the best jokes' - Guardian

From the prize-winning author of The World and All That It Holds, Aleksandar Hemon, Love and Obstacles is a stunningly original collection of short fiction.

The explosive perils of adolescence, a country falling apart, the overwhelming vertigo of striking out abroad: this is life in which love is only one of many obstacles.

From Sarajevo to the darkest heart of Africa, deepest Slovenia, and the melting pot of Chicago, this brilliant and restlessly inventive collection is shot through with humour and truth - found in the most surprising of places.

'Infinitely vibrant and alive' - Financial Times
