A single day in the life of four people in Fužine, the infamous ghetto in Ljubljana, a unique day, 13th June 2002, the day of the very first football match between independent Slovenia and Yugoslavia. Four different people of different origins have to decide, who are “our boys” and whose side they are on. But every goal is celebrated; every point is greeted in the same way. It is almost impossible to guess who is winning and who is losing. The question remains: who won the match? Who won the Balkan war? Who lost? What was it all about? “Individual fortunes and destinies,” says Andrej E. Skubic. His novel Fužine blues is one of the most urban and metropolitan contemporary Slovenian novels. A story of lost roots, identity, direction and purpose, the story shared by many young people in Ex-Yugoslavia, who had to forget their past if they did not want to become foreigners in their own hometown. But his story is also as story of love, loneliness, and impossible desire: the past gone forever, the future never to be. A story that is just like the blues, a story not just about Fužine and the city of Ljubljana, but about our world and our times.
