Ovaj roman govori o detinjstvu dečaka Radeta i vedrim bojama opisuje život u Novom Sadu polovinom dvadesetog veka.

Tmurnim bojama oslikano je nasilno prekinuto detinjstvo i naglo sazrevanje malog dečaka u jednu melanholičnu osobu tokom samo jedne preplakane noći u vozu koji juri kroz noć. Osnovni moto romana je - SVI SMO MI U ZAČARANOM POZORIŠTU, LUTKE OVEŠANE O TANKE KONCE SUDBINE.

U2
Un ebook che svela perché gli U2 sono così famosi e così importanti. Dai loro inizi a Dublino, fino alla fama di oggi. Gli U2 sono uno dei gruppi più importanti del mondo: su di loro sono ovviamente uscite decine di libri.

Ubekvemmelighedszonen
Som barn var Jonathan Franzen bange for edderkopper, skolefester, pissoirer, musiklærere, boomeranger, populære piger - og sine forældre. Han havde ikke noget imod nørder, bortset fra at han var panisk ræd for at blive regnet for en af dem. I puberteten begyndte at han sige "s**t" hele tiden og forsøgte at skjule, hvor optaget han var af at lave komplicerede udregninger på sin Texas-lommeregner. I Ubekvemmelighedszonen beskriver Franzen sin opvækst: sin langsomme forvandling fra en "lille og grundlæggende latterlig person" til en voksen mand med stærke - og besværlige - lidenskaber. Hvad enten Franzen skriver om sin fascination af Radiserne, om den effekt Kafkas bøger hav...
