Dogadjaj od Presedana by Mladen Popovich

Htio sam da ovim djelom predstavim život čovjeka kao egzistencijalnog bića koje, tumarajući u budućnost, ne zna šta nosi sutrašnji dan. Nije mi bio cilj da nekoga povrijedim, kao ni to da nečiji život izložim javnosti. Sve sličnosti su slučajnost. Roman, takođe, ne sadrži moje autobiografske podatke. Roman je više apstraktna forma društvenog metabolizma.
