Aleksandar Hemon is often compared to Vladimir Nabokov because he writes powerful stories about cultural identity and homelessness; about people from Eastern Europe who try to become American in a way that is simultaneously moving and bitterly funny. The same pattern can be found in his latest autobiographical writings which are influenced by his childhood in Sarajevo and Bosnia, the loss of his roots, and by a second life in the New World.
