As funny as a Nick Hornby, but with an existential seriousness that cannot be mistaken. – Ekstra Bladet. A glimpse of what it means to literally and physically be an outlaw because of your name... There is an energy of language, an underlying pain, an anger... – Politiken. A fantastic, unfanatical first-hand portrayal of life in a country at war with itself... You will both smile and feel sad over his descriptions and fast-paced dialogue with its moments of furious tension.” – Nordjyske Bosnian teenager Miki and his family are escaping the Balkan war. They live in a Croatian refugee camp, a former holiday resort, but it’s difficult to adjust. With the war rumbling in the background and his brother in a Serbian prison camp, Miki and his new friends pick up girls, listen to music and have campfire parties on the beach. Then war breaks out between Croats and Bosnians and friends threaten to become enemies. Miki dreams of emigrating to Sweden but his parents can’t bear to give up on their old life in Bosnia. Based on his own experiences, Alen Mešković has written a novel by turns humorous and tragic, which has been compared to Salinger and Knausgaard. It is lively, poetic, raw, affecting and very funny, all the while depicting a European tragedy whose consequences still resonate today.

In Tsawalk, hereditary chief Umeek develops a theory of "Tsawalk," meaning "one," that views the nature of existence as an integrated and orderly whole, and thereby recognizes the intrinsic relationship between the physical and spiritual. Umeek demonstrates how Tsawalk provides a viable theoretical alternative that both complements and expands the view of reality presented by Western science. Tsawalk, he argues, allows both Western and indigenous views to be combined in order to advance our understanding of the universe. In addition, he shows how various fundamental aspects of Nuu-chah-nulth society are based upon Tsawalk, and what implications it has today for both Native and non-Native peoples.
