This international anthology, published to raise funds for Bosnia, was assembled in response to Bosnian suffering. "It is a remarkable book: nothing quite like it has appeared in recent times. It is raw, open and direct...A fist raised against unreason". -- The Independent. "Spare, compelling testament to the cruelty and indifference, tenderness and grief, that haunt the newscasts". -- Booklist. Leading writers from Britain, Ireland, Europe, North America, and Bosnia contributed poems for this collection published to raise funds for Feed the Children and other organizations seeking to alleviate the suffering. Joseph Brodsky, John Mathias, Ted Hughes, Czeslaw Milosz, Andrew Motion, Ken Smith, R.S. Thomas, Glyn Maxwell, and Ruth Padel are just a few of the poets who contributed.
