The Amarcord Launch

Yesterday evening, the publication of my mosaic novel Amarcord was launched at the Film Archive Theater in Belgrade.

First, a short film, “The Confessional” (15 minutes), based on my story from Impossible Encounters, was screened. Then, Alexander Yerkov, a professor of contemporary Serbian literature, talked about Amarcord. After that, I read a story from the book (“Dead Souls”). Finally, another short film was screened, based on the ninth Amarcord story, “The Book of Laughter and Forgetting.”

Amarcord TV Series

Here is a photo taken last night in the Absinthe Bar in Belgrade (where, yes, absinthe and other exotic drinks are served). The bar was the setting of the first episode (“The Book of Laughter and Forgetting”) of the new Amarcord TV series (based on my new book of the same title), being produced by an independent producer for a Serbian TV company.
