It is with great pleasure that The Orfelin Circle invites you to a literary evening and presentation of the novel “The Sun of This Day: a letter to Ivo Andric”, of the author Vladimir Pištalo. This book is his latest work, published in 2018. Mr. Pištalo is one of the best Serbian contemporary writers. He is recipient of many literary awards, among them 2008 NIN Literary Award, for the novel “Tesla: A Portrait with Masks”.

The Sun of This Day: a letter to Ivo Andri

Ivo Andric (1892 – 1975) was a Yugoslav novelist, poet and short story writer who won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1961. Pištalo's conversation with Ivo Andric is a conversation with the tradition. It shows us a different Andric, more emotional, more playful, more passionate. It is also a dialogue between two moments in history: the decolonization that marked Andric's era, and neocolonialism.

Vladimir Pištalo was born in Sarajevo in 1960. He studied law in Belgrade and Sarajevo and received a PhD in American history from the University of New Hampshire. Pištalo’s first story was published in a literary magazine when he was eighteen, and his first book was published when he was twenty-one. Since that time, he has published eleven books of fiction. Tesla: A Portrait with Masks, his first book to be translated into English, won the 2008 NIN Literary Award, the most prestigious award in Serbia, and has appeared in ten languages. He teaches U.S. and world history at Becker College in Massachusetts.
