Partisan Cows

Ubooks Verlag, February 2012.

“Manic Balkan roadmovie from a country where even cows are elegible for partisans´ pension.”

Ludicrous kidnapping-attempt in Bosnia, where war profiteers are considered exemplary citizens, where crime is in high bloom and trust in prophets, quacks and charlatans remains unbowed.

Summary

Two petty Bosnian crooks are planning the grand coup: kidnapping a war profiteer´s daughter. But instead of collecting ransom, leaving Bosnia and openeing a restaurant in Austria, the deadbeats are chased by military, police and an overaged parish.

Emir Imamovic is the implacable chronicler of a nation whose residents purportedly claim cameras to be installed all over the place to for the rest of the world not to miss out on their reality show. Mercilessly, but with an ironic wink he´s sketching an unvarnished picture of Bosnian post-war condition.
