"We traveled through time and space till cosmic silver started to nestle in our hair. The train had probably wandered off into one of those by-road dimensions, which wasn’t difficult to achieve when you were little and had the power to see a miracle wherever you pleased. Some alighted along the way and stayed at their stations and we never met again. Greta,... Read more of this blog post »

Quiet Flows the Una by Faruk Šehić
""Quiet Flows the Una's redemption comes in the edgy, open way that its sweetly earned idiom acknowledges the horror of the Bosnian War and the writer’s combat experience in it. Just as the monster within is finally able to grow through and beyond..." 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.”
