Nejc Gazvoda’s stories are about a generation of 18-year-olds (the author himself was 19 at the time of first publication). Despite his youth, his book is a mature literary work, surprising in its inventiveness. The protagonists are weak and strong, they search for meaning in times of absurdity. They often retreat beyond, to the realm between the worlds of the living and the dead, itself a metaphor for the time between childhood and adulthood, abandonment and rejection. Through the local atmosphere, he offers an insight into different kinds of thinking, into fears and wishes, phobias and phantasms.
