About this product
- DescriptionThis is a tale of life, love and loss, told through two nameless voices, a male character who is living in Canada and a female back in Croatia. Without recourse, to dialogue, the author creates two inner worlds of characters who have emerged from broken homes into the reality of post-war Croatia, with little but their talents and their dreams to keep them afloat. The outline of the story is one that is basically shaped through their personal revelations and feelings, musing on subjects such as art, publishing, suicide, loneliness, depression, drug abuse, relationships with family, living in transition society and ultimately love. As each of our protagonists reveals more and more detail about the road that leads to them ultimately meeting each other, we feel their ultimate search for belonging, their loneliness and the over-powering need for the redemption of love.
