Summary/Abstract: Zoran Plavšić writes about conductors, caterers, peasants, soldiers, old teachers, Roma, neighbor's children and he treats all of them with equal respect, understanding and empathy. In short, he loves all their flaws and is able to present them to the reader so that he loves them too. Plavšić's stories in a beautiful way continue the tradition of Serbian realistic short stories, they feel the influence of Glišić, Kočić, Ćopić, and even Stanković, but this is not about imitation, but about mutual respect for the “little man” and his destiny. And there is something else in his stories worth mentioning, and that is the belief that it is the usual, everyday and seemingly irrelevant in our everyday life and our immediate environment at the same time and what makes most of our days, what, when the line is drawn, is our life, and that it is precisely what seems irrelevant to us that connects us with people from all meridians. The struggle to make ends meet, aging, transience, unfulfilled expectations, all our personal struggles are at the same time the struggles of millions of other people, and the story of one of us is actually the story of all of us.
