Nina Bunjevac explores the life of her terrorist father and Yugoslavia's history in "Fatherland"

I was thrilled to be able to sit down with Nina Bunjevac this year and talk about her book "Fatherland."

There's a movie coming out, an ongoing comic book series that she helps work on, merchandizing, advertising, and she still manages to create a new graphic novel series for kids. I don't know how she does it, to be honest. But she's good at it.
