A Handful of Sand is a love story and an ode to lost opportunity. Now far from his homeland, the novel's protagonist looks back on his life, from his childhood, university days and first working experience to more intimate emotional events, making critical observations on human relationships and human existence. Interchanging with the chapters written in the narrator’s voice are those narrated by a woman. As her story progresses, we realise that she is the love of his life: something that she hopes he will realise before it is too late.
''Croatia’s foremost literary stylist, Marinko Koščec produces the kind of novels that combine crafted sentences and structural experiments without ever losing their storytelling drive'' TIMEOUT CROATIA
