Interview with Aleksandar Hemon

An Interview with Mr. Hemon at Guernica

I've checked his books out from the library a couple of times but never got to them--not because they were not good--but because I am too distracted.  (In the short life of this blog, how often have you heard that?)


  1. Steven - I enjoyed his collection of short stories Love and Obstacles, a range of tales from average to very good. His use of language is powerful. I have not found time or inclination to read any of his other works yet.

  2. Dear Anthony,

    Thank you. All three are always on my library shelves, so I may take that one up after I've finished what is presently on the list. (Maeve Brennan's magisterial, powerful _The Springs of Affection_).
