The short stories in the book cat man dog are thematically connected by the notions from the title. However, this is not a book about pets, about dogs and cats as lesser beings, and about men as higher masters whom dogs and cats serve in their idleness, weirdness, loneliness, emotional frustrations etc. As the manner in which the title itself is written suggests, there are three equal entities in these stories, their lives (and deaths, oh, deaths in particular!) are intertwined and co-dependent as in autonomous, insubordinate creatures. They create a common world, in which things both wondrous and ordinarily plausible happen, all thanks to magnificent artistry of short storytelling. Who knows, once everything is settled and sifted through a receptive sieve, will it not prove that the very basis of Jergović’s literature has always been indeed the very art of short story?
(Ivan Lovrenović)

  1. Sine Kamilo, nema mi djeteta Sine Kamilo, nema mi djeteta Svi znate kakva je naša tetka Kata, više je u životu vremena provela u crkvi nego u kuhinji i češće se s Bogom razgovarala nego s nama svima zajedno, ali ovu priču ne znate. Tako, lijepo, ne znate, jer sam je sve ove godine prešutio, da se ne biste zezali na tetkin račun i da ne bi tko rekao da je tetka luda. Znam ja i vas kakvi ste, ne trebate mi govoriti, i pametnije od nje ste znali budalama načiniti.
