Davor Rostuhar – Džungla

Džungla
author: Davor Rostuhar

Croatian edition only

Is there still a complete, absolute wilderness on this planet? Have the thick canopies of the jungles been able to hide parts of primordial Heaven? Does the jungle hide the answers to the critical questions of the human existence? What does the wilderness never touched by man look like? What are the thoughts of the naked tree house inhabitants in the most remote jungle in the world? What is felt by a man in the jungle when his only footwear is burned to shreds, and his skin is eaten by parasites? Are there people, still today, who live in the Stone Age? Do they preserve a memory of the mythical time or archetypes? How does it feel to survive on that which you catch? What is the relation between the live myths of primordial tribes and a boy from Zagreb in the 21st century? What does the jungle smell like at night? Why do people travel? Do limits exist? What is behind them?

Answers to these and many other questions are given by Davor Rostuhar in her new, best, biggest, and the most interesting book so far.

Description

FROM THE BOOK

Janian je dokono sjedio pokraj vatre i pjevušio neku meditativnu melodiju od pet-šest tonova, koja kao da je odjekivala iz nekog drugog svijeta. Zvučala je drevno, staro kao sama Zemlja, duboko kao Svemir. Isti tonovi ponavljali su se opet i opet, ali činilo mi se da mi nikad ne bi mogli dosaditi. Osjećao sam se kao da bih zaista mogao ostati tamo zauvijek, iako sam znao da ću se sutradan spustiti iz krošanja na zemlju kao da padam iz raja i otići dalje. Legao sam na pod uz vatru i zažmirio. Džungla je odisala svježinom. Janian je i dalje potiho pjevao svoju pjesmu. Visoko među krošnjama, kuća se njihala na noćnome povjetarcu.
