A memoir like no other….
Fantastical: Tales of Bears, Beer and Hemophilia,
Marija Bulatovic paints an unforgettable portrait of life lived in full, vivid, vibrant color. Bulatovic, who grew up in 1980s Yugoslavia, pays loving tribute to her native country—a country that has vanished from the map but comes to life in this lively collection of stories.
With a pitch perfect voice, and a keen eye for capturing the absurd, the outrageous, the hilarious, the touching, and the sublime, Bulatovic weaves a rich tapestry. Bears, gypsies, quirky family members, foiled plans, unusual and unorthodox neighbors, Fantastical has it all. Lovingly told with an unmistakable fondness and deep affection, Fantastical is resplendent with humor, magic, and whimsy.
An exquisite assortment of stories—each more delicious than the last—Fantastical is a tale to be savored.
