About this Item: Skyhorse Publishing, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Set in the town of Travnik, Bosnian Chronicle presents the struggle for supremacy in a region that stubbornly refuses to submit to any outsider. The era is Napoleonic and the novel, both in its historical scope and psychological subtlety, Tolstoyan. In its portrayal of conflict and fierce ethnic loyalties, the story is also eerily relevant. Ottoman viziers, French consuls, and Austrian plenipotentiaries are consumed by an endless game of diplomacy and double-dealing: expansive and courtly face-to-face, brooding and scheming behind closed doors. As they have for centuries, the Bosnians themselves observe and endure the machinations of greater powers that vie, futilely, to absorb them. Ivo Andric s masterwork is imbued with the richness and complexity of a region that has brought so much tragedy to our century and known so little peace. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction--novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

About this Item: Harcourt Brace & World, 1962. hardcover. 1st edition. New York. 1962. Harcourt Brace & World. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket With Some Small Pieces Missing. Translated from the Serbo-Croat by Drenka Willen. 247 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Paul Bacon Studio. ISBN: . inventory # 5232. FROM THE PUBLISHER - When Ivo Andric was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1961 the citation read, ‘for the epic force with which he has depicted themes and human destinies drawn from the history of his country. In the three novellas presented in this volume, the brilliant Yugoslavian writer demonstrates his extraordinary range. ‘The Vizier’s Elephant,’ the title story, is concerned with the eternal human elements of fear, hatred, and the distortion of truth that ultimately follows in their wake. The locale is a Bosnian village and the innocent hero-villain is an elephant, brought from a happier land, and now the fearsome symbol of despotism. ‘Anika’s Times’ is a tragedy that explores the complex and shadowy avenues of guilt and evil. The story tells of an incredibly lovely girl whose beauty ultimately becomes the shame of a community. It opens with an event of madness and concludes with an act of murder. ‘Zeko,’ the concluding story, traces the spiritual evolution of one man from the turn of the century to the latter part of World War II. Mild, introspective, and subdued by a domineering wife, he takes refuge in a routine, subservient, and silent tolerance of life, but finds fulfillment in rebellion and in commitment to mankind. Each of these haunting literary works demonstrates the remarkable creative talent that distinguishes Andric’s writing. Ivo Andric (October 9, 1892 – March 13, 1975) was a novelist, short story writer, and the 1961 winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature from Yugoslavia (he was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that in the time of his biggest popularity was a part of Yugoslavia). His novels The Bridge on the Drina and Chronicles of Travnik / The Days of the Consuls dealt with life in Bosnia under the Ottoman Empire. Andric was born on October 9, 1892 of Croat parentage in the village of Dolac near Travnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, then part of the Ottoman Empire, under occupation by Austria-Hungary. Originally named Ivan, he became known by the diminutive Ivo. When Andric was two years old, his father died. Because his mother was too poor to support him, he was raised by his mother’s family in the eastern Bosnian town of Višegrad on the river Drina. There he saw the Ottoman Bridge, later made famous in the novel The Bridge on the Drina. Andric attended the Jesuit gymnasium in Travnik, followed by Sarajevo’s gymnasium and later the universities in Zagreb, Vienna, Krakow and Graz. Because of his political activities, Andric was imprisoned by the Austrian government during World War I (first in Maribor and later in the Doboj detention camp) alongside civilian Serbs and pro-Yugoslavs. Under the newly-formed Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia) Andric became a civil servant, first in the Ministry of Faiths and then the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he pursued a successful diplomatic career, as Deputy Foreign Minister and later Ambassador to Germany. Ivo greatly opposed the movement of Stjepan Radic, the president of the Croatian Peasant Party, at occasions calling the people that support him as fools that follow the footsteps of a blind dog. His ambassadorship ended in 1941 after the German invasion of Yugoslavia. During World War II, Andric lived quietly in Belgrade, completing the three of his most famous novels which were published in 1945, including The Bridge on the Drina. After the war, Andric held a number of ceremonial posts in the new Communist government of Yugoslavia, including that of the member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1961, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature ‘for the epic force with which he has traced themes and depicted human destinies drawn from. Seller Inventory # z5232

About this Item: Knopf, 1968. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Worn Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1968. Knopf. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Worn Dustjacket. Translated from the Serbo-Croatian by Joseph Hitrec. 304 pages. June 1968. hardcover. Jacket design by Muriel Nasser. ISBN: . inventory # 8257. FROM THE PUBLISHER - These thirteen tales by a Nobel Prize-winning author are set in Andric’s native Yugoslavia and cover a span of some three centuries: from the period when his country lay under the domination of the Ottoman Empire through the harrowing years of the Nazi occupation during World War II. The tales reflect his country’s turbulent past, the conflict of cultures, religions, and traditions that took place within its constantly vulnerable borders, but beneath this conflict lies the darker one in the hearts of individuals buffeted by history and torn by anguish, lust, and love, or tormented by divided loyalties. For Andric is mainly preoccupied with the mysterious forces at work in the innermost beings of people, those forces that link the blood-stained bandit to the fastidious professor, the flighty schoolgirl to the saintly mystic. This collection of stories displays the pageantry of life in its brightest and darkest hues and offers the reader a representative selection of some of the best writing of one of the foremost storytellers of our time.

Following the death of his wife in 1968, he began reducing his public activities. As time went by, he became increasingly ill and eventually died on March 13, 1975, in Belgrade (then Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and tod. Seller Inventory # z8257
