Twenty excellent Croatian writers, poets, painters, journalists, who have never before appeared together between the covers of one book, have related their experiences, their thoughts on islands and on life there. Some are islanders themselves and these are their stories, reflections, viewpoints. The book is a collection of authorial works, stories, poems and personal memories making up a literary archipelago. All stories are islands; as valuable as the real islands which have given me so many happy days. This gives me the chance to share this pleasure with you who, reading this book, will uncover the secrets of one of the most enchanting places on the planet: the coast and the islands on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, the most beautiful archipelago on the Mediterranean.
