Izdavačka kuća Geopoetika, uz pomoć Ministarstva kulture Republike Srbije, pokrenula je ediciju Serbian Prose in Translation/ Srpska proza u prevodu.

Ovaj projekat podrazumeva kontinuirano, sistematsko i organizovano objavljivanje dela savremenih srpskih pisaca na strane jezike, za početak na engleski, i na taj način predstavlja širenje srpske kulture u svetu.

Knjige iz ove edicije prodavaće se isključivo na srpskom tržištu. Međutim, mnogo veći značaj leži u tome što će se one naći u slavističkim centrima, bibliotekama i univerzitetima širom sveta, i na stranom jeziku predstavljati sve što je relevantno u srpskoj knjiiževnosti na najznačajnijim svetskim sajmovima knjiga. Izuzetna dela savremene srpske književnosti, potpuno nepravedno nedovoljno zastupljena u svetu, uz najviši mogući kvalitet prevoda, postaće konačno dostupna i izvan naših granica.

When The Cyclist Conspiracy appeared two decades ago, it was considered a kind of cultural excess, a provocation that stirred the literary audience of the time. It is likely that it still does.

Masterfully intertwining the threads of waking and dreams into the fabric of present, past and future, Basara's novel leads the reader into depths of reflection never imagined possible. Rising from the musty cellar of a local library in the backwaters of western Serbia, the author guides us through a fantastic maze of (fictitious or factual?) documentation to one of the greatest held secrets of all times: an ancient Brotherhood, meeting and planning in the realm beyond sleep, are guiding the destiny of humankind into the arms of Providence - from the future. Drawing the reader into a broad circle of eccentric characters, historical and literary figures (from Charles the Hideous to Nietzsche, Sherlock Holmes and Freud), Basara calls into question the unities of space and time, proving once and for all a truth that we all know in our heart of hearts: History is in the eye of the beholder.

'Some books grow old with years, some are rejuvenated, some remain the same. But extremely rare are those that manage to force reality to change and adapt to what is written in them. Some twenty years ago The Cyclist Conspiracy seemed like postmodern brick-a-brack. Today, it is a historical record that becomes more and more true with every new day. '

David Albahari

One of the most prolific Serbian authors, Svetislav Basara (Bajina Bašta, 1953) is considered to be the key figure of contemporary Serbian literature. His literary career started in the former Yugoslavia in the early 1980s with a collection of short stories, Priče u nestajanju (Vanishing Tales, 1982). For his novel Fama o biciklistima (The Cyclist Conspiracy, 1988) he received the prestigeous Željezara Sisak award. His work, comprised of five collections of short stories, thirteen novels, a dozen books of essays, plays and novellas, has always met a keen critical reception. In 2006 he received the most acclaimed Serbian literary award, NIN Award, for his novel The Rise and Fall of Parkinson's Disease. Some of his titles include: The Chinese Letters, 1985 (novel), Peking by Night, 1985 (short stories), Through the Looking Glass Cracked, 1986 (novella), On the Edge, 1987 (essays), The Cyclist Conspiracy, 1988 (novel), Phenomena, 1989 (short stories), In Search of the Grail, 1990 (novel), The Mongolian Travel Guide, 1992 (novel), Dark Side of the Moon, 1992 (essays), De Bello Civili, 1993 (novella), Selected Stories, 1994 (short stories), Vexland, 1995 (novel), The Tree of Life, 1995 (essays), The Virtual Cabala, 1996 (essays), Looney Tunes, 1997 (novel), Civil War Within, 1998 (English translation of De Bello Civili), Holy Lard, 1998 (novel), The Wolf's Lair, 1998 (essays), Midwinter, 2000 (novel), John B.

Zločin dostojan poštovanja Abdusetar Nasir

Izuzetno popularan, ali istovremeno zabranjivan i osporavan u rodnom Iraku, Nasir je boravio deset meseci u samici zbog jedne priče („Naš gospodar kalifa“). Nijedan arapski roman i nijedan arapski pisac nisu prikazali gušenje slobode izražavanja, smrt knjige pod diktatorskim režimima, bezumni gnev modernih tirana i svu tragiku obespravljenosti čoveka i građanina u arapskom svetu onako plastično i svestrano kako je to u svojim bezbrojnim pričama učinio Nasir.

"O čemu govorim kada govorim o trčanju" među najčitanijim knjigama u srpskim knjižarama

Murakamijeva nova knjiga "O čemu govorim kada govorim o trčanju" našla se na prvim mestima top lista najčitanijih knjiga u većini srpskih knjižara. Murakami ispisuje, kako ih sam naziva, memoare o trčanju i pisanju, telu disciplini, upornosti i iskušenjima, zadovoljstvu i patnji. Nakon što je sam istrčao maratonsku stazu od Atine do Maratona, kao i desetine drugih, pa i sam ultramaraton od 100 km, autor, uprkos svim tim zadivljujućim podvizima, vrlo skromno piše o tome kakav je uticaj sport imao na njegov život i pisanje, želeći, kako ističe, da ga ljudi doživljavaju kao običnog čoveka koga mogu da sretnu na ulici.
