“Neravnine” (“Bumps”) is a book by the Serbian author Jasna Rakićević that sheds light on the stories of “ordinary” people and their small everyday experiences which are all but mundane. The collection of short stories registers subtle and transient yet deeply entrenched feelings that leave on us marks of their passing. These “bumps” are nothing more than residues of accumulated time, a collection of imperfections and fragilities that make our human experience worth telling. The author skillfully experiments with different narrative forms and language capacities, confronting what can provisionally be called “reality” with inconspicuous fictional detours.
