Safe Area GorazdeBook - 2000
The long awaited follow up to Palestine. Sacco spent four months in Bosnia in 1995-1996, immersing himself in the human side of life during wartime, researching stories that are rarely found in conventional news coverage. Here Sacco focuses on the Muslim enclave of Gorazde, which was beseiged by Bosnian Serbs during the war. The book is strongly compared to the Pulitzer prize winner Maus, and advance praise rate it as one of the most important documents to emerge from the conflict as it portrays day to day life at the heart of these sad events.
