Let's Go Home, Son

By Iviva Prtenjača

Translated from Croatian by David Williams

A mother, a father and a son face illness and the restrctions of a pandemic in the context of their native Croatia. The dream of the sub-soaked terrace of their home in Dalmatia is what inspires them to face - and coquer all. Ivica Prtenjača is a quiet novelist: restrained, confident enough that his characters and their meandering fates will do their work on the reader. Let's Go Home, Son has got everything it needs. Family, loss, guilt, shame, love, cautious hope, disappointment, inevitability. Winner of the V.B.Z. unpublished manuscuipt award last year, this novel is catapulting onto the European stage.
