LIGHT and SHADOWS: stories, some autobiographical, others about the lives of other people.
Themes: nostalgia, memories of youth and happiness in the "old country," cultural and other
shocks in the "new." Gradual adjustment and a sober look at new experiences bring maturity and
a feeling of meaningful existence and spiritual growth. Life, at all times and places, has its light
and shadows. The strife makes us stronger.
Stories from this collection have been published in anthologies. Critics have praized them as
the most mature in the author's opus and modern Serbian literature. Color illustrations.
