Description
At the time of his death in 1989, internationally esteemed Serbian author Danilo Kiš left behind this cache of seven short stories. Many of these semi-autobiographical tales are set against a background of oppressive regimes and political exile, and in these final works Kiš continues to examine the never-ending debate between mortality and writing—death as allegory or as a voluntary symbolic act, and writing as the one impregnable defense, writing as the only possible means of survival.

"[Kiš's] pen … does to his characters what nearly every known creed aspires to do to the human soul: it extends their existence, it erodes our sense of death's inevitability."—Joseph Brodsky
