Mirza has masqueraded as "Mickey" throughout his time in Canada but his own identity awaits him when he returns to spend a summer in Sarajevo with his father. His grandfather bears the physical scars of the violence. His mother's psychological wounds are hidden, but reopen when Mirza uses the war as inspiration for a new art installation.Through the eyes of three generations, Jim Bartley's much anticipated second novel tells a tale at once sweeping and intimate, an unflinching story of war, escape, heartrending loss, budding love, and the hard-won understanding that true escape is an elusive and lifelong project.

Jim Bartley is a novelist and playwright. He has written about books for The Globe and Mail, The National Post, Toronto Xtra and other publications. Makarska, and his first novel, Drina Bridge, grow out of his long interest in the lives and stories of people in Bosnia and former Yugoslavia. He lives in Toronto with his partner of 38 years and a large black poodle.
