Detela’s poems and prose are sneering and terrifying accounts of the violent world. His prose is closely connected to his poetic work. Many of his poems are prose poetry. Detela is a master of short works of literature, comprising of short, efficiently and skilfully interwoven sketches. This collection features poems and short works, as well as a short story “Fear and Dreams”. A young boy is living with his uncle at his uncle’s place, which is turning into a true nightmare. His uncle, ever drunk and living in Slovenian turbulent past, is a scary figure. Boy’s aunt is a passive creature always obeying and pleasing his uncle. These are typical absurd and frightening accounts Detela’s prose is fraught with. This book contains carefully chosen topics of this kind which Detela gives in abundance – they quite transparently and relentlessly open up the abyss of violence, absurdity and nothingness of the modern times.
