Abstract:

"'Damages' is a memoir about one man's fight to overcome the mental wounds created by his upbringing as he struggled to find his true identity and freedom. After the death of his abusive father, a Communist official, B. K. returns to Macedonia to care for his mother diagnosed with cancer. Meanwhile, his long search for his biological mother ends, and he tells her about his lonely childhood and adolescence. His "new mother" is tolerant, so B. K. reveals his gay experience in the army, his desire for self-realization causing scandals in the National Security College, his escape to Turkey where he transformed into a stunning 'girl' after meeting a wealthy man, and his return to the underground world of Yugoslavia while it's falling apart. War is coming. Christian nationalism and Islamic fundamentalism rose, and B. K. experienced them almost losing his life. But he eventually succeeded in immigrating to America. Although he finds the bio-mother, he discovers that his adoptive mother is irreplaceable."
