Dane Draženović is a genuine modern millennial antihero of 2018. For an actor who decided to try his luck in Berlin and a homosexual without a single stable relationship, anything can happen. But can it, really? In spite of the world being his oyster, even when successfully involved with numerous projects, it doesn’t reflect on Dane’s bank account. In the time when everything is instant – moments, experiences, feelings – analytical fragile inner self of young Dane Draženović is never at rest. It seems that the internal gap in his personality, rooted in his family relations, cannot be fulfilled with his fairly excessive consumption of alcohol and promiscuous episodes after all. And despite innumerous possibilities within his reach, Dane’s real internal needs are love and safety. When he becomes a five-minute hero on an international level after surviving a terrorist attack and saving a little girl, he struggles with the question – how to live as a survivor? Depicting problems and experiences of a contemporary actor, Bruised Knees  is the  novel about the millennial generation and their place in the world. Raising questions about the most important issues of today, this complex, intelligent and universal novel speaks to the widest possible audience.

Je li ovo uopće ubojstvo? razvija se anksiozna struja misli. Koja je uopće procedura? Može li se završiti u zatvoru, ako se sudariš s nekim? Ne, ne mogu danas ubiti nekoga. Danas, kada sam se prestao sažalijevati. Naravno, ovo nije bilo ubojstvu. Ovo je samo jedan grozan dan u životu Lucasa Fischera, relativn
