The leading Serbian publisher “Zavod” acquired the exclusive rights in Zoran Zivkovic’s collected prose works both in Serbian and English. The Serbian language rights refer to the territory of Serbia, while the English language rights refer to the territory of former Yugoslavia.
The two slipcased editions will be published in two large luxurious hard-cover volumes each.
The first volume, Novels, will comprise seven Zoran Zivkovic’s novels (392,000 words): The Fourth Circle, The Writer, The Book, Hidden Camera, The Last Book, Escher’s Loops and The Ghostwriter.
The second volume, Impossible Stories, will contain ten Zoran Zivkovic’s collections (283,000 words): Time Gifts, Impossible Encounters, Seven Touches of Music, The Library, Steps through the Mist, Four Stories till the End, Twelve Collections, The Bridge, Miss Tamara, the Reader and Amarcord. Along with five uncollected stories (“Compartments”, “The Teashop”, “The Square”, “The Telephone” and “First Photograph”) there will be a total of seventy stories.
The two language editions of the first volume, Novels, will appear for the occasion of the 2009 Belgrade Book Fair, in late October. The two language editions of the second volume, Impossible Stories, are scheduled for early 2010.
