Elijahova stolica

Štiks, Igor.

347 stiks elijahova stolicaIt is year 1992. As his marriage fails and he finds himself in an emotional crisis, Richard Richter, an Austrian writer, returns to his home town Vienna. There, he finds a letter that her mother wrote in 1941 to a Jakob Schneider – one month before Richard was born and one month before her death. The letter says that Jakob Schneider had disappeared and that the pregnant Paula must not search for him – as Jakob was not only a Communist, he was also a Jew. The search for his biological father takes Richard to the besieged Sarajevo where he experiences the most beautiful moments of his life, sincere friendships, and a passionate love. But his life – as well as lives of all protagonists – is determined by fate that he cannot escape.

Elijahova stolica [Eliah's Chair] by Igor Štiks has been translated to Bulgarian (excerpt) by Zhela Georgieva under the title Елияховият стол, published by Panorama, Sofia.
