The collection BIĆE BOLJE – BO ŽEis comprised of poems, short stories and essays written by seven authoresses and one author who write bilingually or in their native languages from the region of former Yugoslavia. In contrast to other such collections there are no motives of nostalgia, longing for the native country, idealization of homeland and pain connected to it, or other themes typical of the diaspora in the works of TanjaBožić, NatalijaMilovanović, AlenaBegić, Dragan Mitić, BiljanaŽikić, VesnaHrdlička Bergelj, SnježanaVračar Mihelač andTamaraKovačević. They are interested in multi-layered themes, the reality of the world, the past and the present, historical changes, the challenges of modern society, individual and collective memory,the identity as a sum of several factors. The literature in this collection is multicultural, which is a completely customary systemof writing in today’s world, created by authors with two or more homelands, languages, identities. The authors from the collection BIĆE BOLJE – BO ŽEare representatives of the new wave of writers and artists who have language as their homeland, world as their home and their works, which are published in their original language, as well as in translation into Slovenian, offer a quality and authentic literature and a true joy in reading.
