Egon is a romance writer and dedicated liver of the good life in a bleak and dismal industrial Yugoslavian town when a calamity occurs. He has run out of Cartier perfume. Egon is determined this lack shall not last. Even if it means cheating a young Gypsy girl of her Playboy magazine, blackmailing a lascivious preacher, publishing an atrocious poet, even conspiring with a band of uncouth cowboys. All the while juggling past and present lovers, not to mention saving a friend from an unhealthy obsession with Nastassja Kinski! Confidently recommended reading for a contemporary audience, The Cartier Project is one of Slovenia's best-selling novels of the 20th Century, penned by award-winning screenwriter and novelist Miha Mazzini while his beloved Yugoslavia was inexorably sliding into the final stages of political disintegration.
