So, don't forget to mention our name!! Metropolis has suggested a few titles by
authors from South East Europe for your reading pleasure:
The Tiger's Wife is Tea Obreht's debut novel and National Book award finalist as well as New York Times bestseller. It weaves together family legend, loss and love, and the recent troubled past. Winner of 2011 Orange Prize for fiction, The Tiger's Wife
is a brilliant and beautifully written first novel.
Peasants Under Siege by Gail Kligman and Katherine Verdery. In 1949 Romania's fledgling communist regime unleashed a radical and brutal campaign to collectivize agriculture in this largely agrarian country, following the Soviet model. Peasants under Siege provides the first comprehensive look at the far-reaching social engineering
process that ensued.
One of the favorite authors at Metropolis Books is Orhan Pamuk: The Museum of Innocence is a dark and moody novel with a message about the human condition. Truly one of Orhan Pamuk's best novels about the tumultuous 1970's in Istanbul.
