Farewell, Cowboy is a modern and hard-hitting novel by one of Croatia’s best-known writers. It tells the story of Dada, who returns to her home town on the Adriatic coast, and tries to unravel the mystery of her brother Daniel’s death. Daniel, although young, smart and popular, threw himself under a train in mysterious circumstances.
In search for clues, Dada meets an array of eccentric characters and passionately falls in love with the young gigolo Angelo, who is a part of a film crew shooting a Western on the nearby prairie. Slowly and painfully she discovers all there is to know about her brother’s death, and how she has been betrayed by someone close to her.
