I am delighted to announce that my new novel, Escher’s Loops (click for excerpt), has just recently been released. Belgrade-based publisher Geopoetika has published the book both in Serbian and in English. As stated here, an English edition is also forthcoming from PS Publishing.
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 humour abound; death is the ultimate destiny, yet always the next story offers infinite ways of escape.
