Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wonder why he was unable to write in his native Bosnian.

Maybe he is like a good friend of mine, interpreter at my wedding when the mayor did his discourse, Stefan, who also is a Yugoslav national, family originally from Montenegro but he grew up in Istanbul and went to international school in Switzerland. Speaks German, Turkish, Greek (his mom is greek), Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and English, but not a word of Serbo-Croate.

I always thought it would be odd to carry around a passport of a country whose language one does not speak, but people do it.

Poor Sasha Hemon. He may be in beautiful Chicago, nicest city in the US (caveat, I've never been to San Francisco) but he is still stuck in the United States. Like being in Lahore Pakistan...beautiful and cool city plumb in the middle of an ideological shithole.

He writes in Bosnian as well, for a magazine there, I believe.  His published books are in English.
