Stories About Contrition/Prostration
Translation by Petra Sapun Kurtin
Introduction by Michael Hayes
Stories by Helena Pericic
Contrition and emotion are not desirable today. That is why this collection is a real endem on the Croatian literary stage. And not only because of the thematics of the stories. The stories in the book were written in the period of some 15 years, and they should be put in the wider context. For instance, today, the genre of sms-story in this collection does not present a novelty as a literary form, but in the moment when the story "What Guido and Margherita da Cividale Did at Night?" was written it surely represented a refreshing experiment. Besides the title story we should point out the story "The Foal and the Devil" that can be considered - because of its montage-technique - the open structure, and the inter-textual play... the peak of the postmodern prose production.
