About the novel:
“An instructive and exciting romance story, titled with the Syntagma “Crossroads of the Worlds”, begins with an authentic author’s entry from the route to Herzegovina in the Međugorje-Čitluk ambience, where his father and mother were met in 1958; Ahmet from city of Foča and Magbula from Mostar. Their life paths were splashing into one to another and from there, upstream of Neretva, they came to Sarajevo where they were made a nest and remained to this day. Here, in the view up to the spring of the river of Bosna, a writer of this mysterious story was born, whose sequels will be followed in new books, followed by the “Crossroads of the Worlds”.
It is difficult to find a person who, at least once for his earthly being, did not ask, “Who am I and where is the root of the tree that flows infinitely, while the last branch is dry and the last leaf is not lost. Or while the human species does not go where will it be.” The number of those who put this question to themselves and others is intimidated, without the intention of asking for an answer. Because, that answer only knows an imagination. And creatures that manage life. Nevertheless, writer Sabahudin Hadžialić, in the character of Bosnian human being named Mehrid Čengić, being aware of the limitations that history offers, has opened a box in which the secrets of his ancestors were stored and confronted them with the reality of his own life. From this encounter of passed and known came the narrative that led us to the crossroads of worlds where are intercepted today and once upon a time, real and fictitious, known and not-known, eager and unwanted. In this environment, which geographically extends from the Sava River down to the Adriatic Sea and a little while as far as it is concerned, “the parallel life stories of this timekeeper and its far-away ancestor from the eleventh century, the slave of God – Great Radon, take place.” — Ivo Mijo Andrić
