In Fantastical, Marija Bulatovic recalls growing up in Yugoslavia in vivid detail. Some of the stories are touching while others, such as the hot dog one, are humorous. You see, Bulatovic loved hot dogs until the day her mother declared that hot dogs cause hemophilia! Although the chapters of Fantastical are not exactly cohesive, the beautiful writing makes it a lovely collection of short stories.
