When the war was over, Robert lived off small menial jobs and took comfort in writing.

Robert Međurečan is 43. When he was 22, he sold his beloved guitar, bought a rifle and went to the battlefield to defend Croatia. When the war was over, he lived off small menial jobs, since employers’ wariness against war-damaged young men was immense. All this time he took comfort in writing.
