There is an energy of language, an underlying pain, an anger... – Politiken. A fantastic, unfanatical first-hand portrayal of life in a country at war with itself... You will both smile and feel sad over his descriptions and fast-paced dialogue with its moments of furious tension.” – Nordjyske Bosnian teenager Miki and his family are escaping the Balkan war. They live in a Croatian refugee camp, a former holiday resort, but it’s difficult to adjust. With the war rumbling in the background and his brother in a Serbian prison camp, Miki and his new friends pick up girls, listen to music and have campfire parties on the beach. Then war breaks out between Croats and Bosnians and friends threaten to become enemies. Miki dreams of emigrating to Sweden but his parents can’t bear to give up on their old life in Bosnia. Based on his own experiences, Alen Mešković has written a novel by turns humorous and tragic, which has been compared to Salinger and Knausgaard. It is lively, poetic, raw, affecting and very funny, all the while depicting a European tragedy whose consequences still resonate today.
