- The book "System of the Senses" is a collection of short stories that includes thirteen texts. This "system" spans more than twenty-five years and changes in the origin, themes, style and source language (Macedonian-German) of the texts. The narrator changes, sometimes he is in the first person, sometimes in the third person, and what prevails is a melancholic mood, "senses", love, feelings, experiences, as in the short stories "La folie", "Remembering the time when trees aborted branches", "The Cruelty of Love's Existence," "A Breathless Story or One Breath Screenplay."
Another part of the texts are socially critical with a noticeable dose of irony, directness and humor, such as "Misanthropy today!", "The fragile future of a porcelain figure", "A ghost with a mask". All in all, "Sensory System" is a book that, in the recognizable style of Elizabeta Lindner Kostadinovska, makes a powerful literary incision in the reader's sensory and mental system - wrote reviewer Alexandra Dimitrova.
The promotion of the book is part of the cultural offer of the City of Skopje - European Capital of Culture 2028.
