Yo Sigo Contando Los Días
by Georgi Bardarov
This novel is based on a true story, the love between a Christian man and a Muslim woman in the midst of the horror of the Bosnian war and the longest blockade in the history of humanity of a city: that of Sarajevo ́s. The two protagonists, Bosko Brkic and Admira Ismic, are known as the "Romeo and Juliet of Sarajevo". The novel recounts the last hours of their attempt to escape from besieged Sarajevo, on May 19, 1993, while in this context a retrospective is made, both of their relationship, and of the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the senselessness of the war.
