How to re-embark to besieged Sarajevo thirty years later, how to evoke the emotions that boiled then? How to rewrite Sarajevo Marlboro and is it even possible, is it feasible and rational that a writer should try to do this once again? The answers to these questions should be negative, but if the writer is bold and impertinent enough, imaginative enough, thenhe will try this experiment. Miljenko Jergović is all that and he just did it with his latest collection of stories Three for Kartal, subtitled Sarajevo Marlboro Remastered.

Reading Three for Kartal one feels the same excitement and joy as when reading the first Marlboro stories. These stories are, naturally, quite different because Jergović describes other people, other events, other imagination of the same time, and the besieged and shell-shocked Sarajevo in which these events are re-enacted. However, these events are deeply ingrained in the author’s memory, he manages to re-enter those times and awaken in the readers the emotions they had when they first read his stories.
