There is a thoughtful review of BANALITIES in Bookslut:

Which ends:
It is the compilation of phrases and thoughts, sentences and ideals —
shared from beyond the physical confines of body, politics, war,
religion, and love — that makes Brane Mozetič’s Banalities
such a worthwhile conversation. For the casual reader or the adept, the
blood-stained pages of this collection may initially mask the artistry
in the wounds that rest on scar-smoothed skin, yet unmerciful
revelation is at hand. The “emptiness of those conversations”
that we waste our time attempting to fill with hopefulness and healing,
therefore, would be better served willingly succumbing to the pain
Mozetič inflicts “at the turn of a page.”
