Letters to Niya, My Unborn Child

Letters to Niya, My Unborn Child is a book standing on the borderline between poetry and prose. It speaks on behalf of women on an extremely important topic – the conscious decision not to keep a baby in all its humane and philosophic dimensions and the long-term consequences stemming from that decision.

This is a book about the freedom of mind to make one of the most difficult choices for a woman, but also about the physical dimensions of that burden and the necessary forgiveness afterwards. This is harsh poetry written in a very sensitive way. A book about love and betrayal. A book about cruelty and strength.

Letters to Niya, My Unborn Child has already been translated into Spanish, English and Croatian.
