Summary/Abstract: It is difficult to describe the way Radmila Karlaš writes, because it really is not something that is encountered every day. Her stories take place in an undefined time that may be ours, but it may also be fifty or a hundred years ago, because they are deprived of everything that could be burdensome in terms of a specific timeline, and focused on the essential. There are only people in them, their mutual relations and the forces that affect them, and which do not have to be from this world. And it's something that sometimes makes you shudder, because those stories are sometimes on the verge of fantasy, but it's not epic, or science fiction, or some fiction from horror literature, but something that strikes at the very core of our collective imagination and doesn't stop until we don’t stop with reading, and sometimes after. Radmila's language is extremely polished, her descriptions are clear and we can easily imagine everything she writes about in front of our eyes. And because of that, everything we read leaves an even stronger impression on us.
