Author: Edita Mujkic

A moving and compelling true story about the power of courage and love. A deeply human story that reminds us of the endless challenges of war, displacement and of fleeing conflict. It’s also a story of hope and the profound difference that a simple act of kindness can make.

The manuscript of Between Before and After was developed during a residency at Varuna in the Blue Mountains.
