New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1990. dj. Hardcover first edition - The second novel by this award-winning poet, and just as inventive as his highly praised 'Dictionary of the Khazars.'

It begins with the story of a brilliant but failed architect in Belgrade and his search for his father, an officer who vanished in Greece during World War II." Translated from the Serbian-Croatian by Christina Pribicevic-Zoric. Includes two pages for the reader to write in the denouement of the novel or the solution to the crossword.
