Eva Markun’s gripping and eerie stories, set between the harsh Slovene
countryside and dirt roads somewhere in Cambodia, depict the endless conflict
between nature and culture: humans, always perceiving new imaginary threats,
fight other animals for living space or try to dominate nature. Challenging
the conditions of otherness, Eva Markun invites the reader into exciting
liminal spaces, where different existences, subject to fear and projection,
are suddenly – and more or less violently – confronted.
