His second book ‘Hit depot’ (2003) was the absolutely literary bestseller in Bosnia despite that was a poetry book. In this book he made a sketches of a several main topic of his later works such as postwar life on the edge of society. His poems are about local (and global) feeling of capitalistic way of life mixed with desperate postwar life in ruins, remains of dead society in Sarajevo

Quiet Flows the Una by Faruk Šehić
"This is a book of war, river Una, writer's dreams and phantasies, and his grandmas but most of all, it is a book about nature and its endurance. Houses burn, people die but nature stays just as river Una flows regardless of what happens. This is a be" Read more of this review »

“Пролетта е религия, по-стара от Месопотамия.”
Faruk Šehić, Knjiga o Uni

“Значи къпането е просто друга дума за възкресение и нов живот. О, колко окайвахме в такива моменти градовете и местата, които чудотворната вода не миеше с вълните си, защото всяка вода е свята и вълшебна, дори и тясното поточе, което си проправя път през храсталаците на някоя забутана ливада. Нашите реки ни издигаха в собствените ни очи, чувствахме се богоизбрани и специално спрямо горките градове без води, но и спрямо жителите им, къпещи се в мътни и мръсни водоеми, чието дъно не се виждаше както на нашето речно огледало, в което се гмуркахме отново всеки ден. Трудно е да опровергаеш факта, че животът не е възникнал във водата. Близостта с жизнените сили на природата, които усещам, когато скоча в реката, не може да се сравни с другите дарове на земята. Това проникване във водата, когато се сливаш в едно тяло с нея. За него копнеят любовниците от всички времена.”
Faruk Šehić, Knjiga o Uni

“Във водата човешкото тяло почти никога не може да има същия войнствен заряд като на сушата. Макар че мускулите проблясват, оросени от водни капчици, тук култът към тялото има само една-едничка цел: да се противопоставяш на реката, като плуваш срещу разпенените прагове, за да почувстваш красотата на водната стихия, която за миг ще стане част и от твоите мишци.”
Faruk Šehić, Knjiga o Uni
