The Sixty-Nine Drawers

by Goran Petrović

Translated from Serbian by Peter Agnone


Adam Lozanić, a student in the School of Philology’s Serbian language and literature program and part-time proofreader for a tourism and nature magazine, is asked to correct a printed book: My Memorial, by Mr. Anastas C. Branica. Living in a tiny apartment in Belgrade, Adam could surely use the extra money, and accepts the job.
While concerned with his monetary situation, he is also concerned about his mental health… for some time now he has been unable to escape the feeling that when he reads, he has already met other people who are reading the same book. He can recall clearly details of their lives, and begins to wonder if could be going mad. Has he read too much, and lost touch with the real world? Or perhaps the book is reality and he is but part of a manuscript?
…and then he discovers that the book was written fifty years from now, by a man already dead…

A masterpiece praised in its native Serbia and in many foreign-language translations, The Sixty-Nine Drawers slowly and gently draws the reader into the author’s unique world, where words take on a life of their own.
The author’s story (and the author’s story’s story…) are accompanied by endnotes to clarify the complex history and culture of Serbia and its people.

A Biography of a Chance Miracle

by Tanja MALJARTSCHUK

Translated from Ukrainian by Zenia TOMPKINS


A Biography of a Chance Miracle explores the life of Lena, a young girl growing up in the somewhat vapid, bureaucracy-ridden and nationalistic Western Ukrainian city of San Francisco. Lena is a misfit from early childhood due to her unwillingness to scorn everything Russian, her propensity for befriending forlorn creatures, her aversion to the status quo, and her fear of living a stupid and meaningless life. As her friends enter college, Lena sets forth on a mission to defend the abused and downtrodden of San Francisco—be they canine or human—armed with nothing more than an arsenal of humor, stubbornness, chutzpah and no shortage of imagination. Her successes are minimal at best, but in the process of trying to save San Francisco’s collective humanity, she may end up saving her own. At first glance a crazy and combative girl, Lena just may be the salvation that the Ukrainians of San Francisco sorely need.

…a wonderful novel by one of the most talented and original contemporary Ukrainian literary voices — Tanja Maljartschuk. You will irresistibly fall in love with the young protagonist, Lena, with her courage to face the harsh realities of life in her country, her charmingly optimistic and occasionally witty stubbornness in opposing the social forces of dominance and governance, and her idealistic determination to create a better world…—Zoran Živković, World Fantasy Award winner

With haiku-like precision, Tanja’s deceptively simple writing style blends surrealism and magical realism with satirical wit, occasionally outlandish humor and poignant social commentary. The German literary media has described her depictions of contemporary Ukraine as full of humor and absurdity, but “more exact and harsher” than those of her peers, comparing her to the 19th-century Russian satirist Saltykov-Shchedrin and hailing her as “a name to be remembered.” This work, her most provocative to date, was a finalist for the 2012 BBC Book of the Year Award in Ukraine, and has been lauded as “simply ingenious” by fellow Ukrainian authors.

Winner of the 2018 Ingeborg Bachmann Prize, the top prize at the Festival of German-Language Literature, for her short story “Frösche im Meer.” This literary event, held annually in Klagenfurt, Austria, recognizes outstanding works in the German language, and this year Tanja Maljartschuk took the top prize at the event with the very first story she has written in her second language, German.


Reviews

  • …Zenia Tompkins’ translation delivers A Biography of a Chance Miracle to English speaking readers in its full quirky, irreverent, breezy and occasionally merciless splendor. […] a collection of stories that appear unnoteworthy at first glance, but swell and fill the imagination as one reads them. The final twist is both perfectly surreal and perfectly logical in a book whose hero’s stubborn faith—in herself, if nothing else—is nothing short of magic.
    Nina Murray, Compulsive Reader
  • This is Maljartschuk’s first novel in English and an excellent one it is too, showing with humour and a serious approach the problems of modern-day Ukraine but the courage and, at times, foolhardiness of a young woman who tries to combat them.
    The Modern Novel
  • …a masterpiece of dark and gruesome humor – a book you won’t forget!
    Residenz Verlag (for the German edition)
  • …an appealing take on modern-day Ukraine, and a nice little life-of tale. … a vivid and entertaining story, with just enough poignancy to it.
    —M.A.Orthofer, The Complete Review
  • While A Biography of a Chance Miracle focuses very much on the young woman, the novel is really all about Ukraine in the post-Soviet era. Maljartschuk sets her character against a backdrop of a country where in order to survive, the people need to become resourceful and independent as quickly as possible. … One of the strengths of A Biography of a Chance Miracle is its light touch, with what could have been a grey tale enlivened by humorous touches.
    —Tony Malone, Tony’s Reading List
  • …it is this second part of the book that makes this book so worthwhile. Lena’s struggles against the system are very well told, not least because Lena stands up to the system but does not always succeed and does not always behave in an exemplary manner. The background to the whole novel – the corruption, greed, incompetence, indifference, bureaucracy, brutality – all the faults that Maljartschuk sees in contemporary Ukraine – help illustrate and justify Lena’s stance.
    The Modern Novel
  • …wise, loving and absurd.
    —Ericka Achermann, St. Galler Tagblatt, Switzerland
  • …Kafka and Thomas Bernhard send their regards…
    —Erich Klein, Falter Magazine, Austria
  • Here irony turns into sarcasm, the smile on your lips freezes… This is a wonderful and at once bitter book, a screaming indictment in prose…Lena rises above this tristesse, a female Don Quixote of the humiliated and affronted, like a hovering Chagallian angel…
    —Sabine Berking, Das Frankfurter Allgemeine Magazin (FAZ), Germany
  • …a great talent has entered onto the stage of world literature here!”
    —Anne Hahn, Kiez-Ticker, Germany
  • With a surprisingly laconic wisdom, the young author manages to expose the entire absurdity of today’s Ukraine… A new strong voice—which, despite its youth, has already found its own style—has entered the literary scene here…
    —Andreas Pittler, Culturmag, Germany

The Image Interpreter

by Zoran Živković

Translated from Serbian by Randall A. Major
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


In a carriage of the Paris metro, nine people cross paths one ordinary Friday morning: a retired office worker who comes there purely to read; a tourist revisiting the memories of sixty years ago; a funeral mourner who has discovered the beauty of cemeteries; an author in search of her characters; a young man with a reality problem; an elderly woman with memory issues; a military administrator with a secret hobby; a jilted woman who has the key to the perfect match; and a secret agent high on adrenaline. Each in turn encounters that ubiquitous and unavoidable gadget: the cell phone camera. Each comes to a realization that changes their life forever. But who is the tenth person in the carriage, and what do her photographs tell her about the other nine that they could not possibly know themselves?

 

The author’s latest masterpiece, finally available in English!
Long-listed for the 2019 International DUBLIN Literary Award


Reviews

  • One of the dangers of Živković’s fiction can be that one gets caught up in the clever construction, more concerned with how he’s going to pull it off than the actual substance, but there’s a lot of creativity and variety on display in these pieces, the stories, themselves. These are fun, unusual episodes, piece by piece, taking unusual turns and playing with a variety of interesting ideas, large and small. Meanwhile, the larger whole is satisfying too. Enjoyable entertainment, through and through.

Hidden Camera

by Zoran Živković

Translated from Serbian by Alice Copple-Tošić
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


A quiet, somewhat neurotic undertaker spends his days caring for his exotic fish, and of course his silent bodies as they arrive. One day, quite out of the ordinary, he receives a ticket to the movies. The movie, however, turns out to be of him, apparently filmed without his knowledge! Convinced that he is being targeted by a TV reality show, he plays along, only to be dragged from one adventure to the next, in a fantastic journey that evolves into a story of love, of death, and of ultimate creativity.
And through his travails we discover new perspectives on our own roles in an increasingly insensitive and scripted world.

Hidden Camera was nominated for the 2007 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.


Reviews

  • Živković surveys the shifting line between paranoid fantasy and legitimate threat in his mystifying novel. When the unnamed narrator, an undertaker, is invited to a private film screening, he’s surprised to see that the movie is one sustained shot of himself sitting on a park bench.
    Publishers Weekly
  • A short, meaty book, this is an antimodernist parable heavy enough for you to know you’ve absorbed real substance, yet ironic enough to ensure you don’t want to kill yourself when it’s over. [A] wonderfully sardonic writer whose idiosyncratic vision so thoroughly serves his bleak, absurdist sense of fun.
    Michael Moorcock, The Guardian
  • …a work of unexpected beauty and surprise. Živković is seeking to communicate something about the nature of life and death, of existence and non-existence, which bends perception into new and challenging shapes.He marries the comic to the melancholic with an enviable balance and lightness of touch.
    Dan Hartland, Strange Horizons
  • Hidden Camera is a love story, a story of love and death; it is also a parable of creativity. Hidden Camera is typical of Živković’s circular narrative style: like a serpent swallowing its own tail, the last sentence of the story draws one straight back to the first. For Živković, the act of creation is an act of love.
    Tamar Yellin, Infinity Plus
  • An inherently compelling, exceptionally thought-provoking, and consistently entertaining read from beginning to end … unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary Literary Fiction collections.
    Midwest Book Review

The Compendium of the Dead

by Zoran Živković

Translated from Serbian by Vuk Tošić
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


THE FINAL PART OF THE PAPYRUS TRILOGY
When certain mysterious events involving books occur, it seems that Inspector Dejan Lukić is always the man for the job. This time, however, things are a little different. Inspector Lukić himself is at the heart of the mystery, lured by the appearance of a number of packages addressed to him in person and left at several highly unlikely locations. The contents of these packages – a set of books known as The Compendium of the Dead – a series of bizarre disappearances and a succession of strange encounters keep the baffled Inspector on his toes right up until the extraordinary dénouement, in which the finality of death itself is challenged. In this, the final part of the trilogy that began with The Last Book and The Grand Manuscript, Zoran Živković demonstrates beyond contradiction the magical and ultimately benevolent power of literature.

Included in The Papyrus Trilogy.


Reviews

  • This third variation on powerful books (and the power behind them) allows Živković to bring the trilogy almost full-circle, and tie up some loose ends in setting everything right — the havoc that a writer wreaks put back in order. It’s a decent, clever idea, and certainly makes for an agreeable conclusion. … The Papyrus Trilogy forms a nicely rounded whole.
    Michael Orthofer, The Complete Review
  • Zoran Živković is more interested in books and how they are made than in hard-boiled detectives and how they detect. Not for everyone perhaps, but good fun…

The Grand Manuscript

Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


THE SECOND PART OF THE PAPYRUS TRILOGY
An empty apartment, locked from the inside: this is the mystery that literature-loving police inspector Dejan Lukić, hero of Zoran Živković’s The Last Book, is called in to solve. What has become of the woman who lives there, bestselling detective fiction writer Jelena Jakovljević? And, perhaps more importantly still, what has happened to the manuscript of her newly-completed novel, Find Me? As Inspector Lukić becomes ever more entangled in the growing mystery, a highly-strung literary agent, a blind painter, a virtuoso lock-picker and various cutthroat publishers all have their part to play in an elaborate game of misdirection and pursuit. Not to mention the dark powers of the National Security Agency and a secret cult seeking the key to immortality. Once again, Inspector Lukić stands at the heart of a literary conundrum only he can solve and through which he stands to gain—or lose—everything.

Included in The Papyrus Trilogy.


Reviews

  • It begins with him being called to a writer’s apartment by her desperate literary agent, who fears the worst. At the writer’s apartment they find the door locked—from the inside—but no one answering. Lukić inexplicably finds no trace of the author—a classic locked-door mystery. … Appearances—and their absence (such the pseudonymous missing author)—are nicely constantly deceiving here, making for an enjoyable enough read.
    Michael Orthofer, The Complete Review
  • Once again Živković’s bookish world is fantastic. But then books can endow their characters with immortality, so maybe it’s not as fantastic as all that. Like the first book in the trilogy, this book can stand on its own, but it is inextricably connected to the first, and some of the philosophical fun will only be apparent to those who’ve read both.

The Last Book

Translated from Serbian by Alice Copple-Tošić
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


THE FIRST PART OF THE PAPYRUS TRILOGY
A series of mysterious deaths in the Papyrus Bookstore brings literature-loving police inspector Dejan Lukić to investigate. Here he meets the attractive owner, Vera Gavrilović, and learns that the only thing the victims have in common is that in the moments before their deaths they were reading an elusive and unidentified volume — The Last Book.
As the plot thickens and the seemingly causeless deaths multiply, the National Security Agency, a secret apocalyptic sect and an exotic teashop become involved, while Dejan and Vera’s growing attachment is threatened by nightmares and ever-encroaching danger. Is a literary madman on the loose, murdering readers according to the method laid down in The Name of the Rose?
In a final race against time, Inspector Lukić must discover the secret of The Last Book and the reason why he feels as though he has already read everything that is happening to him in a novel. The extraordinary denouement reveals hidden truths about the clash of realities and the awesome power of the creative imagination.

Included in The Papyrus Trilogy.


Reviews

  • The resolution shouldn’t surprise readers familiar with Živković’s work, but even those that are should find the anything-but-typical thriller denouement a nice twist. … Živković knows what he’s doing, and he does it well here.
    Michael Orthofer, The Complete Review
  • The plot twists and turns at a fairly brisk pace and every hint of predictability is brushed aside nonchalantly after every successive chapter. It is as though Živković wants to issue a whodunit challenge to the user at every possible instance. Every clue, and red herring, is subtly sown into the plot…
    — Pushpak Karnick, Epic India
  • Serbian master fantasist Živković has written what may be the most delicious mystery by a speculative-fiction specialist since Stanislaw Lem’s mind-boggling The Investigation. Unlike Lem’s novel, it is also a discreet, witty love story.
    —Ray Olson, Booklist
  • In an unnamed, colourless east European state, Inspector Dejan Lukić is called in to investigate a death at the Papyrus Bookstore. The problem is that there seems to be no obvious cause of death. What starts as a commonplace detective story undergoes a slow transformation as Lukic’s dreams lead him to an enigmatic dénouement. Fans of Živković’s stripped-down, elliptical fables will be delighted by this elusive metafiction…

The Writer & The Ghostwriter

by Zoran Živković

Translated from Serbian by Alice Copple-Tošić
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


The Writer: A Very Short Novel, without Chapters, about Writing and Darkness
Where does all the writing come from? Is it divine inspiration, a bolt of lightning that reveals a whole new work in a single glimpse, or a unique gift granted by demonic forces to penetrate the darkness and see beyond it? Two fundamental principles of the most noble of all arts are in the permanent collision, surrounded by the contagious environment of the authors’ vanity, envy, malice.

The Ghostwriter
A writer sits down to work, but who can resist the addictive temptation of the email inbox? Each message alert brings a new question and a fresh challenge, until a tangled web weaves its way around the hapless author. Yet all the while his cat, Felix, gets on with life regardless. Zoran Zivkovic’s hilarious new novella lays bare the oddities and absurdities of the writing life: the traps writers set for themselves and the snares readers lay for them. Here, too, are fascinating puzzles about the nature of authorship and the writer’s identity, the relationship between the writer and their work and between the writer and the reader, the reader and that which is read. Above all, though, it is a paean to the Cat, to a relationship which in its simplicity and innocence, its playfulness and affection, makes nonsense of all these human perplexities.


Reviews

  • In The Ghostwriter, [the protagonist] is juggling email exchanges with five different people, some entirely anonymous, some known to him in different capacities. What the email exchanges share is exploration of the idea of writing under a pseudonym. … The back and forth between Felix and his pushy correspondents, with their different demands and suggestions, is quite amusing, and allows for an interesting exploration of the question of authorship and attribution. Admirably, too, the five very different variations on the theme are brought quite nicely together: as usual, Živković is very good with the final knot tying his stories together.
    Michael Orthofer, Complete Review
  • The fact that you are reading a story about a science fiction writer written by a science fiction writer is the kind of metafictional “mind-game” the writer of The Writer likes to play. The depiction of an “unreality”—or, in many cases, multiple “unrealities”—raises complex questions about existence that do not lead to clear answers.
    —David Soyka, The New York Review of Science Fiction
  • As might be expected of a European academic trained in literary theory, Živković mingles postmodern flourishes—self-reflexivity, deconstructionist ruminations—with the materials of speculative fiction. Overall, he perhaps most strongly resembles Italo Calvino in the latter’s fantastic vein. Surrealism, incongruous introspection, teasing narrative geometries, and startling systems of hyperbolic wit shape and illuminate his yarns, lending them an Escheresque elegance… a surrealist tour de force.
    —Nick Gevers, Locus

Escher’s Loops

by Zoran Živković

Translated from Serbian by Alice Copple-Tošić
Part of The Zoran Živković Collection


Once again Zivkovic demonstrates the sheer power of storytelling in this complex cycle of interlocking narratives. Like one of Escher’s drawings, the narrative threads lead one through a dizzying labyrinth of recurring themes, images and characters, all of whom are linked with elegant mathematical precision: God and suicide, food and poison, monks, athletes, soldiers and soccer players all take their places in the circle-dance. Absurdity, surreality and humor abound; death is the ultimate destiny, yet always the next story offers infinite ways of escape.


Reviews

  • …a delightful journey through the ‘degrees of separation’ that connect us together. It is a story without place and time, yet timeless in its message; and though the characters are nameless, they are at once universal in their appeal and intimately familiar due to their idiosyncrasies. Escher’s Loops is a hard and honest look into one’s personal mirror.
    —Pushpak Karnick, Epic India
