Stefan Boskovic in B O D Y

“You leave Fitting Room no. 5 and drift tiredly down the dark corridor, and in your reflection you watch the shining of your shimmery scales beneath the dim gleam of the neon lights. A hazy sign high on the walls at the side leads you on toward the luxurious center. You travel like an illuminated commodity and leave an olfactory trail of synthetic orange behind you.”

It’s a father and son back by the changing rooms in a clothing store in the mall. Oh, wait a second! No, it’s not.

From the short story “Fashion and Friends” by Montenegrin writer Stefan Bošković and translated into English by Will Firth in the latest Saturday European Fiction.

Bošković’s work was also included in this year’s Best European Fiction.
