Full description for Croatian Nights
Destination: Croatia. This anthology brings together nine British authors whose stories are set in Croatia and the surrounding areas, and nine authors from Croatia, many appearing in translation for the first time. Over the past five years a writers movement called FAK - Festival of Alternative Literature (Knjizevnost) - has staged large literary festivals to enormously enthuslastic audiences in Croatia and Serbia, rejecting nationalism and renewing the opportunities for exchange between these countries and the UK. The authors collected here were brought together for the first time by FAK, but they also share a dark sense of humour, a directness of expression and a willingness to look beyond imposed boundaries. Funny and exhilarating, these eighteen stories take you straight to the heart of the country that everyone's talking about.
