Literary introduction to Zagreb

ImageIn his article, Top 10 alternative hang-outs in Zagreb author James Hopkin (“Winter Under Water” and “Even the Crows Say Krakow”) sums up the most interesting sights of this middle European city. Giving special attention to literary hot-spots like the ex-bookstore and cultural venue – Booksa – Hopkin also recommends Istros’ own Robert Perisic, and his best-selling novel Our Man in Iraq:

“…or try Limb Caffe Bar (Plitvica 14), with its 3D mural of buxom wenches, and heated conservatory (these drinking porches are very popular in Zagreb where a third of the population are from Dalmatia, so they like to be outside, even in winter). Limb is frequented by best-selling author, Robert Perisic, whose novel, Our Man in Iraq (Istros Books) is a must-read for your trip, as it brilliantly captures modern-day Zagreb…”

Lets hope that visitors to the city take up his advice and give this hilarious novel a try. Don’t be put off by little details like a complicated surname!
