Farewell CowboyeBook - 2017
Farewell Cowboy is a taut but poetic novel by one of Croatia's best-known writers. Rich in local color and sentiment, this is the story of Dada, who returns to her home town on the Adriatic coast in order to unravel the mystery of her brother Daniel's death. Daniel, although young, smart, and popular, threw himself under a train in mysterious circumstances. In search for clues, Dada meets an array of eccentric characters and passionately falls in love with the young gigolo Angelo, who is a part of a film crew shooting a Western on the nearby prairie. Slowly and painfully she discovers all there is to know about her brother's death, and learns of the betrayal of someone close to her. In her debut novel, Savicevic playfully transposes the genre of a Western into the contemporary world of the Mediterranean, challenging the omnipotent heroes of childhood and questioning what makes a modern-day hero. --Provided by publisher.
