Serbian Fiction Week: Mirjana Novakovic in B O D Y

The Turks are closing in on Belgrade but the regent appointed by the Hapsburgs is preoccupied with more threatening and elusive foes – vampires. And not only the regent. Count Otto van Hausberg, the novel’s main narrator has come to Serbia to see if the bloody rumors are true. He’s terrified and yet he also appears to be…Satan.

Serbian Fiction Week in B O D Y kicks off with an excerpt from Fear and his Servant by Mirjana Novaković, translated from the Serbian by Terence McEneny. The novel is being published jointly by Istros Books and Peter Owen Publishers in October as part of their latest World Series, bringing writing in translation into English.


This week, B O D Y will present selections of all three Serbian novels as well as an interview with Serbian writer and translator Aleksandar Gatalica, an excerpt of whose novel The Great War, appeared in B O D Y in 2014.
