Before the rain (a tale in three parts) ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in Macedonian and held by 443 libraries worldwide
This trio of stories begins with "Words," as a young Macedonian monk discovers an Albanian girl hiding in his quarters, and attempts to hide her from a local militia. In the second, "Faces," a London photo-agent struggles with how to tell her husband she's been having an affair with one of her foreign photojournalists. In the third, "Pictures," the photojournalist returns to his Macedonian village and becomes embroiled in centuries-old skirmishes. For these people, as one of them says, "Time never dies...the circle is not round." Connected in subtle ways, each finds that in the former Yugoslavia, it does not matter whether a person tries to help or stay neutral. Trouble ensues either way.

In a monastery in Macedonia, a young man must abandon his vows of silence to save a girl from a hate-filled mob. In London, a woman torn between a loveless marriage and a passionate affair with a war photographer finds fate dictates a choice she couldn't make on her own. And in Yugoslavia, the photographer returns to a nation divided by religious hatred and violence. His efforts to salvage some small portion of peace will have an impact no one could foresee, and bring all three stories full circle.
