The Death of the Little Match Girl
By Zoran Ferić
Translated from the Croatian by Tomislav Kuzmanović
Set in a fairytale-like atmosphere on the Adriatic island of Rab, The Death of the Little Match Girl begins with the tragic scene of a little girl’s funeral only to transform into an eerie investigation of the murder of a prostitute nicknamed “the little match girl.”
The story’s creepy settings, bizarre exchanges, dark humor, and deep sarcasm reflect the absurd grotesqueness of the war raging on the mainland and the despair of a country that seems to have lost its bearings in space and time.
