Šehić, Faruk .

188 sehic hitThis volume combines several volumes of poetry and short stories of Faruk Šehić, who is regarded as one of the most important Bosnian authors of today and who almost has cult status in his native country. Šehić, as an officer of the Bosnian army in the 90s, has himself taken part in the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and is regarded as representative of the so-called "lost generation". Accordingly, the war and the time afterwards play a major role in his work, which is characterised by precise language, highly poetic images and, at the same time, socio-political commitment.

Hit depo, Pod pritiskom, Transsarajevo, Apokalipsa iz Recycle bina [Hit Depot, Under Pressure, Transsarajevo, Apocalypse from the Recycle Bin] by Faruk Šehić has been translated into Bulgarian (excerpt) by Rusanka Lyapova under the title Хит депо, Под натиск, Транссараево, Апокалипсис от Recycle Bin-а) published by Ergo, Sofia.
