Croatian publishing house VBZ has started a brand new project called Croatian Writers in Translation. Its aim is to offer tourists visiting the country and foreigners living in Croatia a different cultural dimension – the works of great Croatian writers translated into English and other languages.
One of the published books is The Balkan Express, a collection of essays by Slavenka Drakulić. The book, is, according to Chicago Tribune, “about the effects of war on people’s souls. It is a passionate defense of the individual, an important and timely book that deserves the widest possible audience.”
Other Croatian authors included in the project are Miroslav Krleža, Robert Perišić and Zoran Ferić.
