Her book ‘Heaven in a Blackberry Bush’ was her first novel. It was nominated for the Kresnik Award as Slovenia’s best novel of 2008. In 2010, it also won the 2010 European Union Prize for Literature. The novel was written on a constant journey between the Slovene Hills, Maribor, Milan, Berlin and the sea. The sea that stretches from Piran to Trieste and across the sea, Europe, the world, and across languages and dialects. It was written on a journey through a space where not only one language is spoken, but the place itself still speaks – one language.
