Portrait Aleš Šteger

This highly poetic and socially critical novel intertwines different time levels and plot lines: present-day Slovenia, texts by prisoners from the Yugoslav war, an emerging novel about war-ravaged Europe in the 18th century, and diary entries by prisoners in a writing class. »A book set in a European future, but in which the echoes of the war are still present« [SWR].
