Cadmus Press is about to complete the publication of The Zoran Živković Collection. The series that started in 2016 contains a total of 32 volumes — 11 hardcovers and 21 softcovers. All hardbound editions have already been published. Here are the covers of the 18 softbound editions that appeared so far. The remaining 3 will be brought out by the end of 2020.
Zoran Živković’s new non-fiction book, The Clay Writer: Shaping in Creative Writing, another one published by the prestigious Springer, is just out.
This concise volume by the well-known Serbian writer and literary researcher summarizes his decade-long experience of teaching creative writing at the Faculty of Philology, University of Belgrade.
Always offering attendees four good reasons for not attending his course, or, in a broader perspective, discouraging them from professional writing altogether, the author reflects ultimately on what it really takes to become a writer of literary fiction.
This essay, which makes up the first part of this work, is complemented by a selection of witty short stories, forming the second part, and which have been used as templates in the teaching context.
“The Zoran Zivkovic Collection” (Cadmus Press). The complete fiction — in 11 volumes — of arguably the most remarkable fabulist since Borges and Calvino. See also “Zivkovic’s First Contact and Time Travel: Selected Essays and Short Stories” (Springer).
