9780557494514: Balkanized at Sunrise

The Time: the immediate aftermath of the bloody Balkan wars of the 90s. The Man: a penniless sciencefiction author. The Job: write the official biography of Croatia's President, Franjo Tudjman. In an effort to keep Tudjman out of the War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague, the Croatian government hired Joe Tripician, author of "The Official Alien Abductee's Handbook", to pen a statesanctioned biography for Us consumption. The biography, far from a whitewashed piece of propaganda, became a darkly comic and sadly tragic tale of deception, danger, death and desire, where guilt abounds, but responsibility remains elusive. "Balkanized at Sunrise" is the true story of how Joe navigated between toadying government aides, lying politicians, harassed dissident journalists, and Croatian and Bosnian women looking for a quick visa. It's a fascinating memoir of political, moral, and sexual proportions.

About the Author:

Joe Tripician is an award-winning Producer/Writer/Director and Playwright. His work has been broadcast on Network and Cable television across America, Europe and Japan, and has shown at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Joe received his first EMMY award for the documentary "Metaphoria" broadcast in the US on PBS in 1991.

Joe's humor book, "The Official Alien Abductee's Handbook", was published by Andrews and McMeel in 1997. Author and Futurist Robert Anton Wilson called it: "The funniest book I've read since the Warren Report." Famed scientist John C. Lilly said: "Joe Tripician has achieved the impossible: a truly funny book on alien abductions." 

In 1996 Joe wrote, recorded and performed an alien song ("Ozark Melody") with the legendary Jeff Buckley along with musical partner Frederick Reed.

In May of 2002, Joe performed in his one-man play, "Balkanized at Sunrise", based on his 1997 trip to the Balkans. His Balkan journey began when the Croatian government hired him to write an official biography of their president. Much hilarity ensued. 

In 2012 Joe published two new books:

"My Night with Sarah Palin ... and other disturbing stories" A collection of strange and shocking stories.

"Immortality Wars" a SF novel about the abuses of technology in a world of competing interests.

Joe spends his time between New York and Brazil with his wife and two daughters.

Review:

"I started to read and it was like the face-hugger in the movie Alien: It. Wouldn't. Let. Go. It's funny as hell!! Laughed out loud as I read it!"- Mike Cane, Indie Books Blog
 
"A hilarious escapade. It's Balkans reading thatwon't hurt your head, and possibly the cutest Balkans story an American hastold. With just a minimum of depth, even a lay American canstart to 'get' the Balkans from this great little commercial piece of writingwhich one won't be able to resist reading in a single day." - JuliaGorin, writer, humorist, and political commentator
 
"Balkanized at Sunrise takes the readerthrough a politically charged adventure populated with war criminals, spies,propagandists and dangerous Balkan women. It's a threatening and thoroughlyamusing journey." - Eric Gordy, PhD., School of Slavonic and EastEuropean Studies, University College London
