''The most lavishly awarded novel in the history of Serbian literature. Destiny, Annotated balances postmodern self-awareness with an imagination grounded in history and tradition. Here is the embodiment of historiographic metafiction, a self-reflexive narrative that examines not only its own historical postulates but also the grounds and scope of historical knowledge itself. Readers will find themselves skillfully catered to, whether they prefer the traditional or the avant-garde. Petković gives us characters caught in the whirlwind of history, heroes who face their destinies and say no. Spanning the period from the 18th century to the 20th, this novel also conjures a fanciful and highly (post)modern vision of the place we know from Borges, that garden of forking paths.''

Istočno-zapadna sofra Olga Zirojević

Velika akribija, poznavanje nekoliko jezika na kojima je šarolika i veoma obimna literatura pisana, ali i živa radoznalost i istraživačka strast da se naoko nevažnom i marginalnom da pravo mesto i značaj koji zaslužuju – doneli su kao plod ovu knjigu. Tako autorka postavlja pred čitaoca sofru, zastrtu bez-platnom, i na nju iznosi redom razne delicije Istoka i Zapada i njihove nepoznate ili zaboravljene povesti...

Murakami odbio nominaciju za Nagradu nove Akademije

Japanski pisac Haruki Murakami odbio je da udje u uži izbor za Nagradu nove Akademije, zamenu Nobelove nagrade koju su u Švedskoj osnovale poznate ličnosti iz oblasti kulture, nakon što je Akademija, uznemirena skandalom o seksualnom napadu, prisiljena da odloži dodelu Nobelove nagrade za 2018. godinu. U imejlu koji je poslao Novoj Akademiji, Murakami navodi da ulazak u uži izbor za ovu Nagradu za njega predstavlja čast, ali da trenutno želi se koncentriše na pisanje i udalji od pažnje medija. Nova akademija žali zbog ove odluke, ali je i poštuje...
