My cousin Emilia

Mojata rodnina Emilija

Miracles, just a wingbeat away..

Skopje, 1941: When war breaks out, nine-year old Emilia’s parents take her to stay out of harm’s way with relatives. Her cousin, a little older than Emilia, is fascinated by the girl from the start – overnight she becomes his indispensable companion, and eventually she grows to be the object of his budding sexual desires. Above all else, she opens the door to a deeper world — because Emilia appears to possess psychic powers. In their own back yard, in an abandoned Turkish bath-house or a mysterious hotel, the two of them know how to find the hidden entrances to a realm of fantasy and adventure, a world in which time and space seem suspended.

Dense and atmospheric: A paean to the imagination and the magic of childhood.

“It seems incredible that the vagaries of twentieth century fame have eluded Vlada Urosevic. He’s a provincial cosmopolitan, a traditionally-minded academic and an inventive writer. In short, he’s a citizen of the world who happens to hail from Macedonia; a writer whose extensive oeuvre is well worth discovering.”
