“A novelist of undoubted talent, Mirjana Marinšek Nikolić writes about the time when we, through music and jazz, opened ourselves to the world and liberated ourselves from slavery to a rigid, totalitarian ideology. She writes about the epoch of the new modernity icons such as the famous actress Marilyn Monroe, founder of pop art Andy Warhol and our guest Ella Fitzgerald. She writes about jazz music and its glorious days in Belgrade.
Real events in real time, the juncture of art fiction and documentary testimonies, were seen by participants in the big America and small Serbia. Here is a portrait of the almost forgotten glorious and talented singer Betty Dj., to whom a perspective of the world’s fame was opened. This is an inspiring novel about an inspiring epoch.” (Filip David)
