Post London for Immigrant suckers; So Long Yugoslavia
At birth, every man receives a gift pack that defines him and follows him throughout his life. The gift pack includes the parents, place of birth, the country of birth and religion. Peter Kovach’s pack has been sponsored by the Government who were introducing a new religion: Yugoslav.
London for Immigrant suckers is an account of one man's journey from childhood to middle age but with an additional, major, element... It is also the account of the latter stages of the life of a nation.
The story of the decline and breakup of Yugoslavia are told through the tale of one man.

I won't bother you too much...just to post the reader's favorite review:

London for Immigrant Suckers: So Long Yugoslavia by Kolya S is Peter Kovach’s exceptional odyssey as an immigrant in the UK, a story that features powerful historical experiences and references. While sharing the story of Peter, his hardships and the many challenges he has to face as an immigrant while struggling to come to terms with the social and political reality back home, this story explores the last stages and the disintegration of Yugoslavia and looks at that piece of history through the eyes of a humorous character. There is no way readers won’t feel connected with the protagonist as they follow him in his efforts to find a job, in his multiple relationships over the years, and his immigration issues.

The narrative voice is something like I have never heard before — jovial and humorous — and the entire story is written in a style that breaks the rules of English grammar in many ways. But it is fun. It is something that doesn’t feel like the author’s fault, but a reflection of the narrator’s unique way of saying things — even when the voice addresses readers directly. I knew I’d love this story when I read the first line: “Until a few years ago, Peter Kovach thought that he was among the coolest male specimens available on the market.” It was intriguing and begged me to find out why this man thought so highly of himself and what happened so that he dropped that thinking a few years ago. Kolya S has created a beautiful story and a great character, and I enjoyed the way immigrant issues are handled in the story. London for Immigrant Suckers: So Long Yugoslavia combines humor with originality to give one of the best entertainments readers could have.

I enjoyed “London for Immigrant Suckers” greatly. Very well mastered, written in a descriptive language, full of small but valuable details, it became a real page-turner for me.
This is the life-story of Peter Kovach, from a small town of Bugojno in central Bosnia, who immigrated to London. The story is divided into three books, devoted to different fateful periods and events in Peter’s life. The third-person narration, through which the story is conveyed is outstanding. The author has done splendid job developing characters: Peter, Freya, Dean, they are all so image-bearing and vivid. The book is full of historical facts and events, which are presented very accurately.
I’ve greatly enjoyed the flashbacks, reading with excitement and interest about Peter’s childhood and teenage years in Yugoslavia. The chapter about Peter visiting his hometown, meeting old friends and parents is so astonishing and full of uneхpected occurrences. And I was also really touched by the chapter “This is how it feels to be lonely.”
With all the seeming simplicity of the plot, this book is a very serious, thoroughly written, highly thought-provoking read. It analyzes many aspects of human existence, choices and unexpected turns of life. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
