Olja Savičević: Farewell, Cowboy

Farewell, Cowboy is a tough yet poetic novel by Croatian poet and author, Olja Savičević. The story is rich in local colour and sentiment, following the main character, Dada, who returns to her home town on the Adriatic coast in order to unravel the mystery of her brother Daniel’s death. In her search for clues, Dada meets an array of eccentric characters and succumbs to the charms of the young gigolo Angelo, who is a part of a film crew shooting a Western on the nearby ‘prairie’. Slowly and painfully she discovers all there is to know about her brother’s death, and how Angelo was caught up in it.
