In 2007, the author, translator and publisher Aleš Šteger, born in Ptuj in 1973, and Tomaž Šalamun, born in Zagreb in 1941, who grew up in Koper and is now one of the most important Slovenian poets, talked to each other. The result of their conversation is our little volume as part of the »BOX—the wilde Slovenes«.

Our photo (thanks to Aleš!) shows the two of them in 2009 at the Great Wall in China; in the background is the Forbidden City, Beijing.
