For the middle-aged Giants  life already happened. All of the big things and all the drama has already passed. All of the characters – bold writers, editors, lovers in their forties – lost any illusions about life long ago. They were damaged by downfallen life projects, relationships, marriages, plans and countries. But although life goes on, it still might bring some surprises. Pilić’s antiheroes will find themselves in very wondrous situations, from falling in love with a rubber doll, playing Star Wars with Toshiro Mifune or becoming a passionate baseball fan in forties. However, while taking life as it is, main characters accept all the things without any astonishment. The odd episodes in their lives are just like waves, they come and go. As the volume turns down, their life stays the same. Somewhere between humor and nostalgia, When Giants Walked the Earth is a ripe short story collection full of masterfully written dialogues, bizarre situations, read as a unique literary work of coming to terms with life.
