War Is Not The Season For Figs

Lidija Cvetkovic's War is not the Season for Figs is an arresting collection of poems, deeply informed by personal experience of recent Balkan conflicts and a sensitivity to place, the nailprints of history, and a personal commitment to the value of testimony. Cvetkovic's poetry has the tautness of focus and the concentration of lyricism at its most pellucid. "Strong, resonant, purposeful: these poems don't cajole the reader, they guide and direct the reader with the passion of deep-felt urgency to that place where the present and the past generate sparks off each other. This is where the lyric is reaching us in the twenty-first century." Thomas Shapcott
