Summary note
  • "Glavni protagonist, ujedno i pripovjedac Brda, bivsi PR u izdavackoj kuci i Muzeju suvremene umjetnosti, napusta svoju gradjansku egzistenciju, promocije, otvorenja izlozbi, pozivnice i govore da bi se uspeo na brdo koje dominira nekim jadranskim otokom i od tamo, iz napustene vojne karaule, citavo ljeto cuvao otok od pozara. Ondje,u drustvu psa i ostarjelog magarca, dozivljava vrhunac svoga zivota. Tekst nam pruza istancan i kompleksan uvid u junakovu nutrinu, ali istodobno i u kontekst u kojem zivi, pa se tako na brdu te podno njega pojavljuju suvremeni hodocasnici koji odlaze na duhovne pripreme, bajkeri, izgubljene duse novoga doba, ratnici s PTSP-om,lovci, zlostavljaci: otok itekako pamti traumaticne devedesete. Sve se to pred citateljem odmata polagano i nenametljivo, u okviru realisticno ispricane price koja se i na mikro i na makro razini gradi pomno i suptilno, bas kao sto se pise najbolja poezija. Rijec je o duboko uznemirujucem tekstu, do pucanja nabijenom emocijama i traumatskim iskustvima urusenog, implodiranog urbanog pojedinca koji vapi za zivotnim smislom. Hoce li docekati svoju katarzu?"-- cover.
  • "The protagonist, who is also the narrator Hills, worked in a publishing house and a Museum of Contemporary Art. He leaves his civilian existence, his promotions, openings of exhibitions, and invitations, mostly to manage the hill that dominates some Adriatic island, from an abandoned military watchtower; all summer he guards the island from fire. There, in the company of a dog and an aging donkey, is the climax of his life. The text gives us the subtle and complex insights into the hero's inner self... he sees modern pilgrims, bikers, lost souls, soldiers with PTSD, and abusive hunters: the island certainly remembers the traumatic nineties... This is a deeply disturbing text about an urban individual who seeks the meaning of life. Will he greet his catharsis?"-- cataloger's summary and translation of cover.
