''The most lavishly awarded novel in the history of Serbian literature. Destiny, Annotated balances postmodern self-awareness with an imagination grounded in history and tradition. Here is the embodiment of historiographic metafiction, a self-reflexive narrative that examines not only its own historical postulates but also the grounds and scope of historical knowledge itself. Readers will find themselves skillfully catered to, whether they prefer the traditional or the avant-garde. Petković gives us characters caught in the whirlwind of history, heroes who face their destinies and say no. Spanning the period from the 18th century to the 20th, this novel also conjures a fanciful and highly (post)modern vision of the place we know from Borges, that garden of forking paths.''

Brada natopljena krvlju Daniel Galera

U ovom romanu koji se teško ispušta iz ruku, čitalac ima priliku da se upozna s delom Brazila koji se ne uklapa u našu uobičajenu sliku o toj zemlji i koji je egzotičan čak i velikom broju Brazilaca. Opisujući palanački mentalitet primorskog mesta koje još nije našlo svoje mesto u novom veku, autor donosi razmišljanja i nedoumice mladog čoveka koji pokušava da shvati svoju ulogu u svetu, da sebi objasni ko je on, ko su drugi, da li se može voleti, da li se može praštati i da li praštanje ičemu služi.
