Balkan Bombshells: Contemporary Women's Writing from Serbia and Montenegro

by Will Firth (Editor) - £10.99  Istros Books (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781912545841 | ISBN 10: 1912545845

A collection to whet the appetite of anyone wishing to learn more about a region rich in history, folklore and (her)stories. Telling it like a woman does not mean literature for women only: it provides an insight into half of humanity, a window onto the lives of citizens who work, love and develop their inner lives.
Balkan Bombshells brings together established Serbian and Montenegrin writers like the social activist Svetlana Slapšak, Jelena Lengold (Faiground Magician, winner of the EU Prize for Literature), Dana Todorović (The Tragic Fate of Moritz Toth, Istros/Peter Owen, 2016) and Olja Knežević (Catherine the Great and the Small, Istros, 2020), along with a select group of up-coming writers who together explore the vulnerability and courage needed to face our everyday lives.
