In the novel Night-Time Showing, the reconstruction of a person’s earlier life in a city and the
search for reliable facts about that life turns, step by step, into a narration about origins, about
family, about fate and about the confrontation of individual actors in the face of historical
givens; likewise, it becomes a sort of family genealogy, while being also an onerous story
about growing up, about otherness and differentness, about concealed family stories and
secrets, and also a sort of sociological and historical guide to anticipations of Novi Sad, its
destiny, its rises and falls. Succeeding to reconstruct an epoch from the shards of objects, like
an inspired archeologist, Oto Horvat suggestively and convincingly, under the dimmed
lighting of prose, reconstructs the personal and private life of the protagonist of Night-Time
Showing, and also the private life of the city.
