Learning Cyrillic: Selected Stories
"Learning Cyrillic" presents a selection of fiction by Serbian master David Albahari written since his departure from Europe. In these twenty short stories, written and published in their original language over the past twenty years, Albahari addresses immigrant life--the need to fit into one's adopted homeland--as well as the joys and terrors of refusing to give up one's essential "strangeness" in the face of an alien culture.
