Following on from his short story collection, "You Do Understand?," is this expansive collection of sixteen tales about "urban nomads" lost in a labyrinth of pop culture: "We go to the movies. We read books. We listen to music. No harm in that, but it's not real." A best-seller in Eastern Europe, "Law of Desire" is Blatnik at the height of his powers. He is one of the most respected and internationally relevant post-Yugoslav authors writing today.
