The novels Frozen Time and Roulette are connected with the war in former Yugoslavia, especially the post-war themes, first is focused on missing persons and the second brings us the image of post war Croatian society and its gambling problems. The Diary of Infidelity is intimate novel about relationship between man and three women, which are playing fateful role in his existence. The novel Boarding House faces young man with Jews who survived the Holocaust. They are the last living witnesses to the pre-war world of the Polish Jews, and the author shows in what form the Jewish tradition exists in Poland today. The novel Life Begins on Friday is charming journey into a world more than 100 ago, but very similar to our own. The stories of the various characters unfold, each closely interwoven with the next, and outlining the features of what ultimately turns out to be the most important and most powerful character of all: the city of Bucharest itself.
