His book Sarajevo Blues was translated into Slovenian and published by Nova revija in 1995. In 1998, City Lights of San Francisco published Sarajevo Blues, translated by Ammiel Alcalay, and in 1999 a translation was published in Germany. In 2001, he completed his fourth book of poems, Nine Alexandrias, which appeared in Zagreb, Croatia in 2002, will be published by City Lights in Fall 2003.
