    Die Texte handeln von dem einstigen Widerstandsgeist, der sich nur noch beim Zimtsternebacken äußert, von der Idee zu einer Revolutionierung der Schenkpraxis und von dem eingespielten Alltag einer langjährigen Ehe. Das Fahrradfahren kommt natürlich auch zu seinem Recht. Neben neuen Texten sind die besten Radgeschichten erneut aufgenommen. So wird diese Zusammenstellung witziger Texte zu einem Werk, das Zeugnis dafür ablegt, dass Humor und Ernsthaftigkeit zwei Seiten einer Medaille sind.

    ISBN-13: 9788494449680

    El journey de strength narrativo de Zoran Malkoč, publicado después de haber ganado el Premio Ranko Marinković de narrativa breve en el año 2009 del periódico Večernji record, nos lleva a Eslovenia en los años de l. a. guerra y l. a. posguerra de Croacia, en unos espacios que podríamos llamar perdidos (nunca inexistentes) si no fuese porque quedan inscritos en el mapa de l. a. prosa contemporánea croata gracias a los héroes de Malkoč: una forma specific de inscribir vencedores y vencidos.

    Miembros del membership de aficionados del Hajduk, bestias humanas, combatientes decepcionados y enanos que, como en un proyecto de estado secreto, eliminan las minas y transforman los rincones olvidados de Eslavonia en un paraíso turístico… Todos estos reyes menores de coronas oxidadas tienen el mérito de hacer que l. a. excursión hacia el frágil castillo aéreo de l. a. prosa de Malkoč se convierta en un viaje del que no queremos (ni podemos) volver.

    La narrativa de Zoran Malkoč evoca a los espíritus de Babel, Dostoiesvki, Marinković, Bukowski… pero el tono de estos cuentos pertenecen sólo al autor y a los lectores.

    Brutal, atroz, pero extrañamente bello, situado al margen de cualquier moda o tendencia, de una sinceridad que hace daño, El cementerio de los reyes menores es una de las mejores colecciones de cuentos publicadas desde los ninety hasta ahora.
