Pavao Pavlicic is one of the most fertile authors in commemorate Croatian literature. For the wider circle of readers he is famous for his crime stories that have been written continuously since 1976. In the 90s a new plot appeared in his stories. It was his family town - Vukovar. It was an answer for the events that were taking place in Balkans then. Pavlicic autobiographical compositions have no political associations though. They make literary trail to recover Vukovar from being forgotten. The art of Pavlicic confirms using two ways of telling the story: the infantile, the adult one and the skilful using stylistic devices like sensual description, spatial, ethical and esthetical modeling as well as personification.
