Delighted to announce the publication by Peierene Press of Senka Maric‘s Kintsugi tijela in English (Body Kintsugi), translated by Celia Hawkesworth.
Kintsugi tijela was the winner of the Mesa Selimovic Award for best novel, 2019 in Maric’s native Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is already published in eight other countries. It will next be launched n Latin America by Fondo de Cultura Economica and in Italy in 2023 by Giulio Perrone Editore.
‘As a revelatory account of illness, the novel stands alongside Anne Boyer and Audre Lorde, while the sensuous intelligence of the prose, in Celia Hawkesworth’s astonishing translation, reminded me of Virginia Woolf. It’s a wonderful book.’ – Caleb Klaces, author of Fatherhood
