Book of the month
Memory

The book of February is Memory. Encounters with the Strange and the Familiar by John Scanlan, a sociologist at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Scanlan draws on history, philosophy and technology to offer a sustained investigation of how we can comprehend recollection, whether elusive or vivid. Engaging and inspiring, this book explores how the nature of memory itself has been remade over time; and how, as a historical, technological, and collective phenomenon, it is continually remaking everyday life. This month you can purchase Memory on our web-shop at a promotional price!

The Time of the Goats; The Return of the Goats

Nearly 20 years after the first release, the novel The Time of the Goats, written by Luan Starova, translated by Mate Maras, returns to the Croatian audience. This edition contains two novels: The Time of the Goats and The Return of the Goats.

The Time of the Goats is a novel that, in a humorous, yet tragic manner, portraits the life of an ordinary man in the Balkans after the Second World War. In the novel, we find out about post-war events and bizarre bans on goat breeding that endanger the existence of the Balkan people. In a series of comic situations Starova depicts all the irony, not just of the ban, but of the relations between authority and people in general. Awarded with numerous international recognitions, translated into many languages ​​and published in France, the United States, Poland and elsewhere, the book was proclaimed the best European novel in 1997.

A renowned writer, that writes in Macedonian and Albanian, released a new novel called The Return of the Goats. The title of the novel is just a subtle irony in which Starova, undemandingly but unambiguously, illustrates the bitter truth that goats, as well as freedom, are long gone from modern man's life and will not come back. In this allegory of a dark, negative utopia, goats are just the last romantic feature, a reminder of the time when existential self-reliance was actually possible.
