"Reminiscent of Dylan Thomas's memoir A Child's Christmas in Wales, A River of Oranges trades Thomas's simpler, more innocent era for a darker time of war, refugee camps, loss and uncertainty. Nazarko's fluid prose triggers our senses as he immerses us in the sights, sounds, smell and tastes of his childhood and his family's exodus from the Adriatic city of Fiume after it became part of Yugoslavia. Intelligent. Evocative. Captivating."
