Look Through the Window


Translator: David Limon
Pages: 214


Look Through the Window is a multi-layered novel touching upon many burning social issues. It is also a deeply moving story about two unusual friendships. By using economical, clear and smooth style, the author conveys profound messages concerning the present state of the world. On his fifteenth birthday, a boy receives a shocking present from his parents who don’t realise that he will see their act as a crime that will radically change his view of reality. Already semi autistic from a blow to his head, he decides to drown in a nearby river which forms a border between Croatia and Slovenia, and is a popular crossing point for migrants. In the nick of time he is saved by a Syrian refugee a few years his senior. Gratefully, he joins him in an adventurous journey across Europe all the way to London, where he discovers that nothing is what it seems. Along the way, the boy and his travel companion try to overcome their cultural and religious differences and align their ideas about friendship, liberty and equality. Look Through the Window is a touching story about friendship between a human and an animal, a boy and his piglet, as well as a story about friendship between a Christian boy and a Syrian Muslim refugee. Ambitious in its scope and range and intensely readable.
