Adin Ljuca’s One White Day
Added: February 10, 2018
In his new book One White Day, Adin Ljuca chronicles the story of a man who finds himself inadvertently in an extreme situation of war, illness and loss, which the Bosnian writer observes from a perspective bereft of pathos or a veil of melancholy. He composes a sophisticated mosaic from fragments of human fate, telling the intimate story of a man and woman whose wartime experience have left them without any illusions or many of their nearest and dearest. His book One White Day has been translated by leading Balkan Studies expert František Šístek. He led a discussion with the author on images and stereotypes of the Balkans, Czech-South Slav relations, nationalism, the refugee phenomenon and literary matters.
