"Dino's poetry is often reflections on love and darkness, death and light; these strange constellations which some days seem so distant, yet are a part of human life." - Ole Holmstrøm
Pathétique is my book of poetry that is dealing with emotions regarding love, death, light, darkness, despair and hope. The book is about heavy emotions and thoughts on serious subjects as war, love, death… As the title suggests, the poems are often flooded by great amount of feelings. It was a deliberate choice. If I haven’t written these poems down on a paper at the time (during late 1990s and early 2000s), I would probably be more insane than I am today. :)
The book contains a Danish and a Bosnian version. Unfortunately, there’s no English version yet. However, English-speaking visitors can have a look at “In Passing“, a poem that is part of Pathétique. It is also possible to order the book from anywhere in the world.
The blue edition is the first and special edition of the book, and unfortunately it is sold out. I have six-seven copies myself. But the interested can order the other (chestnut) version here.
Fine illustrations in the book are made by my brother Elvis, the cover and photo by the author. So, what do you get? 90 pages, 6.00″ x 9.00″, perfect binding, 60# cream interior paper, black and white interior ink , 100# exterior paper, full-color exterior ink. The price is only $11 or €9.99!

I hope you will enjoy it.
But wait, maybe you don't want to have a physical book in your hand (uhm, shame on you!)? You can download it for free - here's the Danish explanation, and here is the Bosnian ditto.
