Call Me Esteban


“Stylish and brisk, these stories refuse to wallow in tragedy, becoming instead a convincing testament to the consolations of art.” —Publishers Weekly starred review


With unapologetic vividness, Lejla Kalamujić depicts pre- and post-war Sarajevo by charting a daughter coping with losing her mother, but discovering herself. From imagined conversations with Franz Kafka to cozy apartments, psychiatric wards, and cemeteries, Call Me Esteban is a piercing meditation on a woman grasping at memories in the name of claiming her identity.
