Book synopsis Across the Road – truth

Novel “Across the street – Truth” is an autobiographical novel, confessional prose. Author, i.e. the main hero tries in various ways to leave Serbia for the EU, in search of a better life, at a time when for many it was unfeasible because of the political situation in the country and complicated procedures for obtaining a visa. The action starts in a truck that the author moves on the road to the Slovenian border, which he must cross illegally, because he has a passport in which he does not have the required visa to enter.

While grabbing a lifetime chance, at the request of a truck driver, he begins to confess his life in eight incredible stories, filled with experience, emotions and unusual human fate. The main character tells them to remind them of exciting moving pictures from the screen, but that the novel does not lose literary meaning, nor a philosophical view of life.

His narration becomes a generator of motivation for the reader and is reflected in unequivocal messages. He chooses stories that are on the border shocking, but they are pitiful and emotional, so that the reader does not leave indifferent at any moment. It clearly establishes this boundary with a sincere attitude towards the events it describes, as well as strong emotions that do not hide, but highlights them to the forefront, returning to the minutest details about the people, places, experiences and knowledge that are mentioned. It clearly strikes the past and looks at deep, deepest into itself from a huge time distance.

In the first story named Put, he describes the decision to illegally cross the border, encounter with the driver and almost epic separation with a girl. The author uses an extraordinary descriptive style that accentuates the exciting continuation of the journey and suggests that the reader will have a common journey through his exciting life. Also, the author of the constant digressions, sometimes even choked with humor and very specific metaphors, keeps that story in one line and does not allow the reader to postpone the book for another reading. In the second story – Bombing, the main character describes Serbia, its city of Uzice, as well as its parents, neighbors and comrades, in a difficult and extraordinary situation, examining their moves and decisions, testing themselves, their moral and human potential while watching death in the eyes . In the story “Sweet Problems”, the author describes in detail the secondary school, puberty days, but also the momentous moments in which he reflects his departure from his hometown to study, as well as everything that was then happening in Belgrade in 1999, seen by the eyes of a fruitor, from the province. With the story of ‘Story,’ the reader is an unusual dash from the life of Serbian restless high school students. Facing them with fear, face to face, on an improvised stage, in which, in incredible circumstances, the main character of those stories, amongst his friends and acquaintances, reveals brave people, but also the cowards who squeezed the situation out to the fore. The author paraphrases his life and places him on the 20 square meters of an improvised stage, in front of the car’s lights, where masked actors, the kids, catch their comrades. The story “Gray Angel” describes the author’s infinite love for a girl who was a heroine heroine. The protagonist is ready to, breaking the purest emotion, stands opposite the greatest human marriage and begins the struggle to preserve her life and love. In the stories of ‘Pad’ and ‘The Netherlands’, the author points out how life is full of crafts and how the web, seemingly accidental circumstances, took him past the plan, to the place where the head can be lost. In these stories there are drugs, Belgrade and Dutch dark streets. The author puts them in his palm and does not hide anything. It proves that it boldly opens up topics that are rarely opened earlier. Novel closes the story “Freedom”, in which the author tells the truck movie about the work of his countrymen abroad. This is the famous story that records the latest American films about young boys from the Balkans who, in search of luck with cars, are ruining the goldsmiths of European cities.

All the stories of the fascinated trucker and the main hero arrive at the destination, up to the Slovenian border, to which they have gone. A novel who is written in a sincere narrative tone, as an omnibus, eventually becomes a whole, displaying in his fullness the protagonist who thrives in his intention. He crosses the border, he stops and sends a motivational message to the reader.
