Croatian literature to be promoted at London Book Fair

The London Book Fair will be held on 12-14 April, and Croatia will be promoted with a programme called "5 Books from Croatia".

This is the first time the country will be promoted by such a unique publication.

The publication is about five authors, of whom four are contemporary writers -- Milena Benini, Marko Dejanovic, Kristian Novak, Sibila Petleski, and Miroslav Krleza, a famous Croatian writer who used to be a prominent figure in the cultural life of both Yugoslav states.

The collection of crime stories "Zagreb Noir" will be launched at the fair on 12 April.

"Zagreb Noir is an outstanding collection of noir-ish and harrowing tales, each set in a distinct neighbourhood or location in Zagreb. Editor (Ivan) Srsen has curated a diverse, powerful, and dramatic group of stories that offer tremendous insight into the perspectives of contemporary Croatians," reads a programme for Croatia's participation in the fair.
