Sarina druga ljubav

August 20, 2018
Mujičić, Kemal, author.
© 2014.
122 pages ; 20 cm
Roman Sarina druga ljubav koristi iskustva prethodna dva romana (Pet litara benzina, Vrijeme za ljubav), evocirajući pogdješto najuspjelije dosege proznoga prvijenca Rad na crno, ali polazi od posve drukčijih premisa. Riječ je o romanu na izrazito psihološkoj podlozi, iz koje se razvija priča o glavnim likovima i njihovim psihološkim (dis)balansima. Mujičić Artnam opet ne zaobilazi osjetljive teme poput žudnje za potomstvom, neuspjelih začeća i "medicinski potpomognute oplodnje", trudnoće, emocionalnih podvojenosti i seksualne žudnje, polazeći od iznimno osjetljive i često traumatične teme ljubomore kao motivacijskoga okvira unutar kojega se razvija priča. Može se zaključiti kako je pred nama tekst prepun iznenađenja i neočekivanih obrata, kako na razini teme, tako i na razini strukture romana, odnosno njegove, inicijalno prilično jednostavne kompozicije.

Parabajka

August 20, 2018
Kovačić, Ivana, 1979- author.
© 2013.
137 pages ; 20 cm
"Parabajka je djelić kojeg posjedujemo svi, krije se u nama, hrani se našim strahovima i ograničenjima. Ona može biti podsjetnik na sve što nije dok se trudimo zadržati sve što jest. Mogli bismo je nazvati mnogim imenima, no u ovom slučaju ona poprima ovakvo zvonko i naizgled bezazleno ime. Koliko god se razlikovali u spolu, godinama ili fizionomiji, babaroga, bogeyman ili Parabajka predstavljaju lica dječjih strahova. Zanimljivo je da upravo Parabajka u knjizi stoji kao oslonac koji Ivani Kovačić dopušst progovaranje kroz queer identitet, ne kao onaj različitosti, već prihvaćen iznutra, proživljen i osnažen do razine emancipacje od vlastitih strahova. Snaga i vašnost ovogt romana proizlaze iz fragmentiranosti osobne priče koja nas suočava s vlastitim fragmentima. Ovakav oblik proze, koji u trenucima graniči s poetiziranjem realnosti, nesvjesno nas navodi na proučavanje vlastitih života sličnim, tehnikama. Bilo da se radi o potrazi za kauzalnošću, fiksaciji suvenirima prošlosti ili jednostavno provlačenjem onoga što je bilo kroz filter vedrih boja, ponekad je potrebno upoznati tuđu priču kako bismo shvatili vlastitu.
