Hidden camera by Zoran Živković( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From one of Serbia's greatest contemporary writers, Hidden Camera opens with the narrator finding a mysterious, blank envelope stuck in his apartment door inviting him to a private showing of a movie. Or so he initially thinks. Upon arrival at the theater, he discovers that there's only one other person in the audience, a very attractive woman whom he's seated next to. Then things get a bit more mysterious. The "movie" he's been invited to see includes a scene showing him sitting in a park. Believing that he's an unwitting participant in a complicated hidden camera show, he goes along with the variety of setups he's faced with, which continue to get more involved and absurd. As the "show" develops, he becomes more and more paranoid and distrustful, but he keeps up the ruse to its thrilling conclusion

Dopo il giallo atipico L'ultimo libro, Zivkovic continua la sua esplorazione narrativa del mondo dei libri con un romanzo a mosaico che esplora in sei storie collegate tra loro il tema della biblioteca, da quella personale a quella pubblica. Nella biblioteca virtuale uno scrittore scopre i libri che non ha ancora scritto; un appassionato lettore si trova ad affrontare una biblioteca di casa che cresce a dismisura sino a occupare ogni centimetro quadrato del proprio appartamento; nella biblioteca notturna un lettore può consultare, per una sola notte, le vite di tutti gli esseri umani come se fossero altrettanti libri; nella biblioteca infernale si scopre quale sarà la pena dei peccatori; la biblioteca più piccola si trova su una bancarella; e nella biblioteca più raffinata... Sempre surreale, spiazzante e intrigante, Zivkovic è capace di sorprendere nel giro di una pagina e ha il dono unico di trasformare la nostra passione di lettori in narrazioni avvincenti e curiose

"Dok Evropa jos uvek ismeva nacizam, Beograd gradi dve bogomolje: katolicku crkvu Svetog Antuna i budisticku pagodu. Potonju za svoje privremene sugradjane Kalmike, poreklom Mongole, koji su sa Belim Rusima pobegli pred Oktobarskom revolucijom. Kalmicka devojcica Kaja za to vreme trenira macevanje, odlazi na jahanje, uci jezike i baca pod noge sve muskarce koje susretne: od kosookih vrsnjaka do americkog poslanika u Kraljevini Jugoslaviji. Pa i jednog Nemca - buduceg ratnog zlocinca. Jedina koja pokusava da joj stane na put je Mica Djurdjevic, novelistkinja, agilna clanica Drustva za ulepsavanje Vracara i uciteljica u beogradskoj Borackoj skoli za macevanje i boks ..."--Back cover

Impossible encounters : a mosaic novel by Zoran Živković( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A nuanced mix of the ordinary with the surreal, the mundane with the sublime, this mosaic novel quietly twists trusted concepts. With simple yet fine prose, this story unfolds as a series of otherworldly meetings. After death, a man encounters not a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel, but a hall of portraits and, locked in a room, the most extraordinary artwork of all. Other colorful characters include a young man who finds himself atop a mountain, a bookseller that services the most ordinary of requests from a highly unusual patron, a banker who meets his maker on a train, a priest who receives absolution from the devil, and a dying author who finds hope in the most unlikely of conversations
