Item description for The Survival League (New Croatia) by Gordan Nuhanovic & Julienne Eden Busic...

With the Croatian Ministry of Culture, Ooligan presents Gordan Nuhanovic, whose prose is a doorway to the heart and soul of a vibrant society ravaged by recent wars. The first of three Croatian titles to be published by Ooligan in 2005, these stories probe the human condition through the commonalities and the idiosyncrasies of everyday life. Gordon ("Flash") amuses and entertains with his sensitive, evocative tales. Born in 1968, Nuhanovic was a war reporter during the Homeland War and is currently a journalist and literary critic in Croatia. Besides several literary awards and work in numerous literary journals, he has published two previous collections, Survival League (2002) and Battle for Every Last Man (2003). Nuhanovic was vocalist in the Croatian punk rock band The Mothers.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Survival League (New Croatia)?

Ironic, biting, funny and sweet  Apr 11, 2006
In Gordan Nuhanovic's ironic yet oddly cheerful stories, The Survival League, nothing ever turns out - the English lawn won't grow, the free haircut comes at the price of social ostracism -- yet the main characters retain a kind of foolish, hopeless optimism, which charms the reader. Always the war casts its shadow over the internal landscape of these characters, most notably in the powerful and enigmatic "Generation of Talented Experts," which depicts a grotesque transformation of not only a country, but of all the social interfaces of that country, to end in a kind of ugly hope. There's a disconnect between the people depicted in these stories - between husbands and wives, fathers and offspring, between genders. Life seems to trip along its ordinary way yet the bar owner goes back to his job pulling corpses out of the woods, a wife betrays a husband, there's fear in the darkness, potential enemies and informers everywhere. One's countrymen are transformed into shadowy figures.

You'll think Kurt Vonnegut, you'll think Milan Kundera, yet Gordon Nuhanovic's voice and sensibility are uniquely his own - ironic, biting, funny and sweet all at once.

The book includes a brief history of Croatia and notes by the author about the genesis of each story. Nuhanovic's resume encompasses stints as a war reporter and a member of a punk band. Read the stories and that mix will make sense.

Twisted lives in exotic settings illuminating common experiences  Sep 23, 2005
I'm amazed Gordan thought of these stories in the first place: daisies run amok, a man obsessed with feral cats, another who must outwit relatives who want his kidney stones. These stories and the many others in the book are engaging, strange, entertaining, thought-provoking, and well-written. The book is a pleasure to read and share with others. I hope many of Gordan's writings end up in English, he's a real treat to read.
