This three-part novel tells the stories of three seemingly very different characters whose crises bring them home with the hope of restoring their weary souls. The reader’s task is to see through their language of, more or less, disturbed minds, which is not easy although highly rewarding. A schizophrenic art historian, an alcoholic, former minister, and a student of philosophy who cannot distinguish reality from dreams, are the unreliable narrators that confront us with their fuzzy worldviews given in a bitter-sweet, harsh and humorous tone. Using some of the more interesting techniques of the writer’s craft, Matijević’s masterful narrative structure, combined with modern sensibility, restores our faith in the power of art.

“We can conclude that this novel by Vladan Matijević represents an excellently conceived and executed work…The pessimism of the novel is convincingly depicted by the author, prompting the readers to undertake an active approach to analysing and determining their position in relation to the narrative. I think that it is precisely this provoking quality which is the strongest quality of the novel.”

 Ivan Radosavljević

Vladan Matijević (Čačak, Serbia, 1962), a novelist, poet, playwright, essayist, entered the Serbian literary scene in the last decade of the 20th century, with his first book of poetry Not Disturbing the Havoc (Ne remeteći rasulo, 1991).

Istočno-zapadna sofra Olga Zirojević

Velika akribija, poznavanje nekoliko jezika na kojima je šarolika i veoma obimna literatura pisana, ali i živa radoznalost i istraživačka strast da se naoko nevažnom i marginalnom da pravo mesto i značaj koji zaslužuju – doneli su kao plod ovu knjigu. Tako autorka postavlja pred čitaoca sofru, zastrtu bez-platnom, i na nju iznosi redom razne delicije Istoka i Zapada i njihove nepoznate ili zaboravljene povesti...

Murakami odbio nominaciju za Nagradu nove Akademije

Japanski pisac Haruki Murakami odbio je da udje u uži izbor za Nagradu nove Akademije, zamenu Nobelove nagrade koju su u Švedskoj osnovale poznate ličnosti iz oblasti kulture, nakon što je Akademija, uznemirena skandalom o seksualnom napadu, prisiljena da odloži dodelu Nobelove nagrade za 2018. godinu. U imejlu koji je poslao Novoj Akademiji, Murakami navodi da ulazak u uži izbor za ovu Nagradu za njega predstavlja čast, ali da trenutno želi se koncentriše na pisanje i udalji od pažnje medija. Nova akademija žali zbog ove odluke, ali je i poštuje...
