Translations from, to and within South Eastern Europe


Das Verschwinden des Schattens in der Sonne

Frischmuth, Barbara.


Living abroad
A student of oriental languages travels to Turkey to research information about a secretive order for her dissertation. However friendly her welcome, and however hard she tries to observe local customs and rules of behaviour – she runs into a wall of silence. House arrest and jail arrests make her understand that reality is nothing like her fairy-tale or mystic preconceptions.  She begins to perceive reality, and senses why some things have to happen in secret.

The Shadow Disappears in the Sun has been published by Connectum, Sarajevo  in a Bosnian translation by Naser Šećerović, with the title “Iščezavanje sjenke na suncu”.
