"Not what you write, what you read is important. Mirza Emir seemed to know him for a long time ... It was like he was standing between the angels and the magnificent ... It was like he was standing ... Far away, fictional fiction, a village behind the mountains ... Two young men crossing the road in this remote village: Mirza Emir and Yusuf ... and the Mirza Emir's love to Gül, Yusuf's love to Yildiz ... Will the love of young people find their response? Will this double love echo in the mountains? Üstün Dökmen reveals in his new novel Letter that how greed and idle beliefs can turn into bigger fires, not only an observer and a guest but also the environment." -- Rough translation of the cover.

Blue Moon

June 13, 2018
Karakaš, Damir, author.
Zagreb : Sandorf, 2014.
128 pages ; 21 cm
"Karakašev roman Blue Moon prati jednog fanatičnog rockabillyja, propalog zagrebačkog studenta iz provincije na koncu osamdesetih. Mladića koji se jako brine o svojoj kokotici ipak će stići i druge brige, odjeci njegove egzistencijalne izgubljenosti, u doba pred rat čiji se dolazak čuje na ulici i u obiteljskim razgovorima. Sudar mladalačke subkulture i traumatičnog obiteljskog naslijeđa u to doba naročito odjekuje. Gradski milje, kao azil junakove subkulturne slobode, s vremenom biva koloniziran "obaveznim" općim diskursima, a roman, atmosferski spajajući intimno i društveno, postaje svojevrsna, uvjerljiva i autentična, slika predratne tjeskobe. Roman Blue Moon snažan je i dubinski turbulentan oproštaj s jednom mladošću i jednim vremenom u kojem se puno toga sudaralo, iz kojeg je bilo teško zamisliti budućnost." -- cover.

Layla maxaa loo dilay = Why was Layla killed : qiso dhab ah

June 13, 2018
Suldaan Nayruus, author.
[© 2016]
146 pages ; 22 cm
"Written in Mogadishu, Somalia; published in Stockholm, Sweden." -- Cataloger's judgment.
"Layla Maxaa Loo Dilay (Why was Layla killed) is a love story between a Yameni girl in Mogadishu during the colonial period and a milk delivery boy. Layla, a beautiful young veiled girl whose tradition did not allow her to talk to met let alone befriend them, fell in love with a young man from whom she bougnt milk from. It was love at first sight. But her intense and irrestible love collided against tradition and family values. As was the case, Layla chose love over tradition and ignored the warning signs that the forces against her liaison with this poor man with no title or wealth would go to great length to put out the fire burning inside her. And so it was. It cost her, her life. Layla was killed for loving the wrong person at the wrong time. A stunning and tragic love story to be read over and over again." -- Cover summary.
