Summary/Abstract: Pavle Aleksić's stories are short, polished and full of quiet sadness. It is as if time has stopped in them, and the characters have remained to cope in this alienated world without a future. They talk about unsuccessful attempts for man to find his place under the sun, about the inability of two beings to achieve communication, about the inability to stay and an even greater inability to return. The sadness of thousands and thousands of kilometers traveled was distilled in them, after which no goal was reached. They bring us an America where there is no place for anyone's dream. But, despite all that, they provide a kind of comfort and warmth, the knowledge that we are not alone, the realization that we are alive in a world that continues to pulsate and lasts in spite of everything.
