Out of Control, sort of postmodern release, recounts the inebriated adventures of young Arnold who doesn’t have problems of accomodation neither of work nor of university, since he was thrown away from the three. Arnold and his friends evolve in an eccentric world, excessive, an impossible world, would say anyone who has ever found himself in a country affected by madness. It is precisely in such a country that the story unfolds, although its name is never mentioned, one could recognize the Serbia of the nighties, and this despite the fact that the characters of the novel form a purely German onomastic constellation. Besides, this Serbo-German combination strongly adds to the apparent absurd of the novel, but also opens up to a great and fertile field, at the same time humorous and worrying.
