A stream of words and feelings

“No, this is not a story. It has no structure, no beginning, no end. It is one single wish.” The wish to get a hold on something that actually is not really comprehensible for us. The narrator of Maja Gal Štromar’s prose work Misli name, ko ti je lepo (Think Of Me When You Are Fine), which was published last year, is a woman around forty who tries to come to terms with her father’s death and, on this occasion, also with his life – and with her own that is so inseparably associated with his, that was and still is affected by him, although he was absent in every respect most of the time. It is a very intense text, with regard to language as well as with regard to the images; the intensive preoccupation with words and symbolism constitutes its poetry.
