Essays by Miljenko Jergović in Polish

2017-11-07
How to overcome false illusions? Why should great literature provide truthful accounts of “ducks on glazed frost”? What is Robert Lewandowski obviously missing? Why do Croatians dislike Tadeusz Różewicz? What are the stories told by the subconscious of Polish cities? These questions are tackled by Miljenko Jergović – the greatest contemporary writer in Croatia – in a collection of essays edited by the ICC under the title “Nutmeg, Lemon, and Turmeric. Observations from Zagreb”.

The earliest text in the collection comes from 2002, while the most recent one from October 2016, and it is its first publication. The book has no equivalent in any other language and was developed specially for the Polish readers by an acclaimed translator Magdalena Petryńska. Featured texts come from Jergović’s eight volumes of essays and excerpts of his journal “Jutranji list”. Some of them were printed in newspapers, Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin magazines, at the online magazine “Ajfelov most”, as well as on the writer’s website.

The volume launch will take place on 7 November. Pre-sale during 21st International Book Fairs in Krakow at the B75 stand. Join us at the promotional meeting with the author on November 23 (Thursday), at 5.00 pm at the ICC.
