Alagić is a master narrator, his reality is tangible, odorous and visible, the events multi-layered and refined with symbolism. The twelve stories, that depict different periods and places, the old age and wasted youth, the devil, curse and madness, show us that Amir Alagić is an important name in our literature, and we should read his works.
