Izet Sarajlic, Preface by Predrag Matvejevic. Edizioni Magma – FLM Naples 1996 (It.) format 17x24 - pp. 136 - ISBN 88-8127-014-5

The pages presented here were published during Sarajevo siege. In Il libro degli addii (The Book of Farewells), the poets tells what had been most precious for him in his lifetime: it is a farewell to his numerous friends and enemies. Proper nouns become a metaphor, keys for understanding the book. This log-book written by a shipwrecked person includes many episodes, each summarizing a story. The author observes not so much the war but rather life during war: in the end, life will prevail but black dreams will last over time, maybe unforgettable.
