About the Author

During his long and distinguished career, the Croatian writer Miroslav Krleza (1893-1981) battled against many forms of tyranny. He wrote over forty novels, plays, and volumes of poetry and is widely considered to be the greatest Croatian writer of the twentieth century.
Zora Depolo also translated Krleza's The Return of Philip Latinowicz.
Joshua Cohen was born in 1980 in Atlantic City. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction 2022 for The Netanyahus: An Account of a Minor and Ultimately Even Negligible Episode in the History of a Very Famous Family. He lives in New York City.


An attack on conformity.-- "Library Journal"
On the Edge of Reason is one of the great European novels of the first half of the twentieth century.--Susan Sontag
Paris had its Balzac and Zola; Dublin, its Joyce; Croatia, its Krleza. One of the most accomplished, profound authors in European literature.--Saturday Review
Krleza is a shrewd observer of man as social animal, and his wry, sardonic style fits cleanly into the Eastern European tradition of bureaucratic satire by the likes of Kafka, Karel Capek, and Jaroslav Hasek.-- "Publishers Weekly (Starred)"
