BelladonnaPaperback - 2017
"Andreas Ban, a psychologist who does not psychologize anymore about history, memory, and illness. Andreas Ban, a psychologist who does and a writer who no longer writes, lives alone in a coastal town in in a coastal town in Croatia. He sifts through the remnants of his Croatia. He sifts through the remnants of his life--his research, books,photographs--remembering old lovers and friends, the events of WWII, and the breakup of Yugoslavia. Ban's memories of Belgrade, Amsterdam, and Toronto alternate with meditations on the mental faculties of rats, a depressed arctic fox, and the agelessness of lobsters. He tries to push the past away, to 'land on a little island of time in which tomorrow does not exist, in which yesterday is buried'"-- Provided by publisher.
