Review of "Fragile Travelers" by Jovanka Živanović, trans. Jovanka Kalaba

Jovanka Živanović’s novella, Fragile Travelers, contains a dreamer. Her name is Emilija, or Ema, which is surely not a coincidence. In her waking life she is a high-school teacher. In her dreams she is much more: philosophical, introspective, able to fly, carrying a serpent baby in her womb. Dream things. And she has, perhaps accidentally, captured a man within her dreams.
