Hemon intended to stay in the United States only briefly, for the duration of the program, but when war broke out in his home country, he applied for and was granted status as a political refugee in the United States. In Chicago Hemon worked a series of jobs, including as a bike messenger and a door-to-door canvasser, while improving his knowledge of English and pursuing a graduate degree at Northwestern University.

Hemon brought back Jozef Pronek, the protagonist from his earlier novella, with Nowhere Man: The Pronek Fantasies , the story of a young man growing up in Sarajevo who later attempts to navigate a new life in Chicago while working minimum-wage jobs. The Lazarus Project intertwined two stories of eastern European immigrants to Chicago.

Hemon received much critical acclaim for the novel, which was a finalist for a National Book Award. He followed this with Love and Obstacles , a collection of short stories narrated by a young man who leaves Sarajevo for the United States when war breaks out in his home country. The Making of Zombie Wars chronicles the quotidian difficulties of a workaday writer attempting to finish a screenplay about a zombie invasion.
