From the laudation by Andrej Blatnik :. Singer, Thomas Pynchon. Furthermore, he has edited a number of magazines and book series. He resides in Calgary, Canada, since the autumn of Albahari is one of the most distinguished and influential prose writers of former Yugoslavia, a fact confirmed by his numerous literary awards.
Another novel, Leeches , won the Belgrade City Prize. Thus it comes as no surprise that Albahari used the phrase Mute Song as the title of his personal anthology as well. The space which Albahari was entering in the late s and early s was quite different.
What was appreciated then was reality prose, the aesthetics of tough marginals, street-wise survivor types, who spoke a robust idiom, were past masters in the language of fists, and — at least by night, if not by day — mastered the most beautiful girls as well.
Much is left unsaid, left for the reader to puzzle out. All those who candidly label him as an apolitical author should realise that Albahari had campaigned for greater liberty even before Yugoslavia began to crumble, joining the vanguard of the marijuana legalisation movement in the late s. The bread is spread with forest fruits jam, and the boy is savouring the taste in anticipation. But in the back yard he is approached by a boy from the third floor, older and stronger, who plucks the bread from his hand without saying a word.
He takes a bite, frowns, and spits. Ugh, forest fruits! The prose of change did not try to avoid changes. When the war is over, the mother in the novel Bait tells her two children that they are going home. Inquiry into identity is always an inquiry into borders, belonging, transit and departure. An apatride is not just one who has to leave his homeland: indeed, this departure may actually be easier if the homeland proclaimed in your ID does not fit the tradition of your family, culture, perhaps religion.
An apatride is also one who writes in the only homeland left to him, language, so very differently that he has few or no sympathisers in it. With his transit from s Serbia to s Canada, David Albahari may have passed from one kind of homelessness to another, but his book publications and editorial work have built a homeland for many other writers, literary loners who had arrived at a literature site fostered by a different cultivation.
