Serbian writer Danilo Kis once wrote of the Balkan people: “We’re exotic, politically scandalous …  [but] who on earth can ever find literature here?” Yet the region’s literature is thriving, with new writers always cropping up. More pertinent than wondering whether literature exists is weighing what matters more, memories of bloody war, ethnic fracture and national dispossession, or producing tales that supersede ethnicity and conflict, substituting globalization for nostalgia. Different authors have strongly different viewpoints.
