Nastup’s protagonist is a talented young man, who came from a small rural town to the Serbian capital to study law. A fragment from this novel shows his social career and his moral corruption. Some parallels can be found in Western European realist novels and in Serbian literature (Fielding, Thackeray, Stendhal, Balzac, Maupassant, Radičević, Ignjatović). Nastup applies two types of narrations: the novel has internal and external narrators as well.
