Thirties are new early twenties, or at least that is the case for Nameless Writer, the anti-hero of the Loser by a Landslide. Girls, booze and endless alternative parties with the crew from the block are his way of prolonging careless adolescent years of living with parents and avoidance of adult responsibilities. While dancing as long as he can, Nameless Writer makes us think twice about today’s lost generation who grew up in deterioration of a welfare state. Between the values they adopted and the world they live in there is a huge discrepancy, which makes them so eagerly attached to the unreal. They are precarious culture workers, poorly paid (if paid at all) talented individuals, unable to move out of their parents’ house. When Nameless Writer’s friends, Emir, Ilija and Fric accept responsibilities that come with adult life, such as jobs, children and seriousness, it will make him question his reality. While he experiences romantic unhappiness, it will result in great clash that will finally make him grow up. Very much attached to the Zagreb scenery, identity of this modern Peter Pan is greatly influenced by music and literature, which he doesn’t try to hide while advising us what to read or listen to according to his taste. Smart and humorous, witty and dynamic, stylistically precise and superior literary voice of Sven Popović is one of the most interesting emerging voices of contemporary Croatian literature.
