Dogadjaj od Presedana by Mladen Popovich
Price: Free! Words: 54,770. Language: Serbian. Published: April 7, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Urban
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.

"E, danas nije tvoj dan." Napisali smo Krivac i ja 1999. na koricama umjesto blurba. Mislili smo da tako treba, da je tako dobro. Isto tako smo i pisali. Tada nismo ništa znali o pisanju, teoriji književnosti, čitateljskoj recepciji i percepciji, o izdavaštvu - o ničemu! Znali smo samo da želimo pisati i da to bude drugačije od svega što smo do tada čitali. Prvi mačići u vodu! Provjerite. :-)
