“Catch the Hare”: The course of a female friendship in the “Heart of Darkness” of the Balkans

By Lana Bastašić from Gutenberg Publications.

Translation: Ismeni Radulovic

A phone call disrupts Sarah’s peaceful life in the city Dublin. It is Leila, her inseparable childhood friend, who urges her to return to her after twelve years of talking Bosnia to go together to meet their long-lost brother. Layla needs to know where he is and Sarah decides to make this trip. However, returning home forces her to reconsider what she thought she knew well: her place, her childhood friend, their shared experiences, the reasons why they took different paths.

The winner of the Lana Bastasic European Literature Prize (born 1986 in Zagreb) tells the complicated course of the friendship of two women in the “heart of darkness” of the Balkans
