Summary/Abstract: Considering the difficulty of the novel's theme, the composure of narration, and the writing skills, one would not think The Sacravenges was Amir Alagić's debut novel. Alagić elevates the art of narration to an exceptional level, so much so that each of the characters becomes a novel in itself – there is nothing too insignificant for the author, and he is able to discover infinity in details. Sadly, people from the seaside town, which is the novel's setting, dedicate their inner infinity only to revenge. They are crumbling inside like their country that has descended into war. Although aware they are hurling into a terrible eternity, they have decided to taste the infernal agonies during their lifetime. Amir Alagić was born in 1977, in Banja Luka. So far he has published the novels The Sacravenges (2016), Hundred Years' Childhood (2017), and Tunnels (2019), and the short story collections Under the Same Sky (2010), and The Lines Which You Call Rivers. He published short stories and poems in various literary magazines and anthologies. He wrote a screenply for the short feature film Toying, or a Broken Water Heater (2012). He lives in Pula.
