The Last Book has been receiving some nice attention recently. It seems my “meta-fictional thriller” is making quite an impact.

And Larry at OF Blog of the Fallen mentioned The Last Book in his 2008 roundup of translated fiction:
Serbian author Zoran Živković has been a favorite of mine ever since I read the 2004 English translation of his The Fourth Circle. Although most of his stories that I’ve read have been short, thematically-connected “story suites,” The Last Book is a suspense novel about why people are dying after they open a particular book. As is fitting for his tales, Živković’s tale is in turns surreal and poignant, with a twist ending that, while not surprising for those familiar with his writing, is a fitting conclusion to a playful mystery.
