Croatian Nights: A Festival of Alternative Literature

For the last six years, the playwright and novelist Borivoj Radakovic has invited leading British writers to come to Croatia, and more recently to Serbia, and perform to huge audiences alongside the very best authors from the countries that make up the former Yugoslavia. The Festival of Alternative Culture (‘FAK’; both a festival and a network of new writers and publishers) is legendary in Croatia and beyond, and now Croatian Nights celebrates the networks it has created. Containing 18 new short stories set in Croatia, this anthology features nine UK authors and nine writers from the former Yugoslavia, most of whom appear in English translation for the first time. As Croatia becomes an increasingly popular holiday destination, and thoughts turn from war coverage and the Hague to EU enlargement, these stories capture the true spirit of this extraordinary area, and are a must-read for anyone who loves contemporary fiction. With contributors: Zoran Feric, Vladimir Arsenijevic, Borivoj Radakovic, Ben Richards, Anna Davis, Toby Litt, Niall Griffiths, John Williams, Nicholas Blincoe, JELENA CARIJA, SALENA ‘SALIVA’ GODDEN, MILJENKO JERGOVIC, GORDAN NUHANOVIC, EDO POPOVIC, ZORICA RADAKOVIC, MATT THORNE, GORAN TRIBUSON, TONY WHITE
