The politician Siniša is sent by the government as a commissioner to a remote Adriatic island. The island’s inhabitants want nothing to do with the mainland. Far from the power games and political intrigues, from corruption and bureaucracy, the islanders live in a breathtakingly beautiful Mediterranean landscape far removed from the problems of our globalised world. Siniša, a stressed-out city person, learns on the island to slow down and to appreciate serenity and the essential things in life. A wonderfully satirical novel, written with the light touch of the South.
