"With the publication of Post-Yugoslav Literature and Film, Gordana Crnkovic has confirmed her standing as one of the leading specialists in post-Yugoslav culture. Anyone interested in the literature and film of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, or Serbia will find much of interest in this volume. This is a work of mature scholarship, rich in insights, and deserves a place in every university library." -- Sabrina Ramet, Professor of Political Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway
"Gordana Crnkovic's Post-Yugoslav Literature and Film is a groundbreaking book which single-handedly creates a new research agenda. Her analyses of Macedonian, Serbian, Croatian and Slovene literature and films will be much admired by readers and influence the way we think about post-Yugoslav cultural space in decades to come." -- Zoran Milutinovic, Senior Lecturer in South Slav Literature and Culture, School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies, University College London, UK
At first sight, Crnkovic's book could leave the impression of being merely an informative overview of select films and books from post-Yugoslav cultural production. However, this is actually an argument-driven book, very carefully composed, with a hidden plot and topics selected in such a manner that the films and books Crnkovic discusses act as steps in the development of the argument. ... Post-Yugoslav Literature and Film: Fires, Foundations, Flourishes is an excellent book that redirects scholarly interest in ex-Yugoslav cultures towards a new territory-not only towards a new production, but also towards a new agenda in approaching it. * Slavonic and East European Journal (SEEJ), 58.4 (Winter 2014) *
