Press Reviews

Remzije Sherifi devotes large sections of 'Shadow Behind the Sun' to her life and work with other immigrants in Scotland. But the most moving and intriguing sections of her well-written and carefully assembled story deal with this former journalist's life as an Albanian woman in Yugoslavia and then, unluckily, in Greater Serbia. Remzije Sherifi was there. She left the bodies of loved ones behind. She knows what we did not know, or what we preferred to ignore. Sherifi certainly did not set out to write a justification for interventionist foreign policies. But that is one of the peripheral achievements of the splendid book that is 'Shadow Behind the Sun'.
