Vila Fazanka (Villa Fazanka)
Upon returning from abroad, where she spent almost her entire working and adult life, Ana, the main protagonist of Villa Fazanka, buys an apartment in Novi Sad, overlooking the Danube and the Army Veterans’ Club. She tries to settle in, but the birds of the past disturb her peace. In the month of August, she goes to the north of the plain, to Villa Fazanka, to look after the house and the dog of her best friend. This marks the beginning of a cluster of stories, encounters, and relationships involving seemingly ordinary, but also very unusual characters. This is a novel about the serene plain that swells like a pimple, and from which the voices of times past and the former residents of collapsed houses do not allow the veil of forgetfulness to cover everything around them. Villa Fazanka, where the coastal and plain ambiences intermingle, is a novel about potential loves and a world where losses do not necessarily drag us to the depths, but open up new realizations and lead us to tranquillity.
