About the Book

What hides in forgotten letter boxes, historic archives, the confused mind of a demented old man, who names a mouse with his deceased wife’s name? How does history, the stories of our ancestors, affect the future? Are we still aware of of how absurd the present is as we watch the news and soppy films? “Brskanja” (‘Rummaging’) doesn’t accept instant solutions, it unveils the whole palette of the deepest human emotions. The short story collection is a tight-knit whole, a mosaic of the best Vinko Möderndorfer can offer: the reader feels the thrum of blood in the veins of the heroes, the warmth, forgiveness, and subtle social criticism.
