Description

One story. Two endings. Genuine and fictional. Which ending is yours?


What do you say to someone who is dying? And what do you say when that someone can't understand a word you are saying? How do you comfort each other throughout... and beyond?


My love, if you go away in a few days, the world will lose its colors and darken like the land of Mordor. If you go away and leave me to wander aimlessly, alone in this sea become wild, like a ship with a broken rudder and drowned sailors, and if I don't find comfort in the warmth of your body, clutched in my embrace at the end of the day, I'm afraid I won't survive.


"I don't regret anything. Marcel was not only my cat, he was my everything. My brother, my friend, my world shrank in a soft gray-striped furry ball."-Bernard Jan


Powerful. Emotional. Honest.

About Bernard Jan

Bernard Jan is the pen name of an author - a novelist and a poet - from Croatia. His first books have been written at the beginning of war in Croatia in 1991, amidst the air alerts and illusory attempts when he wanted to believe and think that life was normal, that everything is alright with the world. In his lifespan he has written and published five novels, two novellas, one book of poems and an essay in Croatian. Four of his manuscripts, together with his book of poems, are translated into English. A World Without Color and Look for Me Under the Rainbow are the only titles currently published in English. His passion for entertainment resulted in his becoming a partner of Tom's Music Place, which was established in 2009 by his friend Thomas Carley Jr. with the goal to respect the music. His need to help others came to the fore during his volunteering years: first in advocating for environmental protection, and then his volunteering, activism, work and advocacy for animal rights to the present day. He did some volunteering for refugees, too, because suffering does not know borders and when it comes within your reach, in your yard, you simply have to do something. As part of his animal advocacy activities, he had the great honor and pleasure to translate "Eternal Treblinka: Our Treatment of Animals and the Holocaust" by Charles Patterson into Croatian language. Bernard Jan's official website is www.bernardjan.com.
