Luka Bekavac

Publisher: Fraktura


A novel about memory, trauma and transcommunication: a triptych of different voices, weaving together historiography, speculative fiction and highly stylised prose. It opens with a monologue, the thoughts of a young woman living with her sister on a frontier of sorts, a virtual outpost in the otherwise uninhabited Slavonian plains. This poetic and fragmentary narrative, removed from any recognisable timeline, revolves around themes of solitude, nature and technology, as well as the possibility of transcommunication—contact with “the ‘beyond.”
