Knjiga o Uni

Faruk Šehić

Publisher: Buybook

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Mustafa Huzar, who is writing the Book of the Una, is bipolar: in him he combines the life of a former soldier and that of a relentless poet. Just when he manages to put the shattered fragments of his life back together, everything falls apart again. His recollections of a country that no longer exists, of the war and of the killing are “dirty and repulsive”. Compared to them, daily life is nothing but banal. Respite and a way out of the tangled labyrinth of his mind comes in the form of writing. So he returns to the shores of his childhood, the banks of the Una.
