"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. :-)
