About the author (1992)

Ivo Andric began to write short stories in 1923 and was one of the most respected writers in Yugoslav literature of the interwar period. He gained worldwide acclaim with his postwar novels The Bridge on the Drina (1945) and The Chronicle of Travnik, which eventually earned him the Nobel Prize in 1961. The Bridge on the Drina became the first book in a trilogy, which was followed by The Bosnian Story and The Woman from Sarajevo, which were both published in 1945. Andric wrote almost exclusively about his native Bosnia and its people, isolated for centuries in a world of myths, legends, hard life, and unfulfilled aspirations. What interested him most was the mixture of races and religions and their attempts, not always successful, at living together in harmony amid the forces constantly tearing the fragile social fabric apart. Andric's ability to penetrate the heart and the soul of his characters and his meticulous craftsmanship established his reputation as one of the greatest Yugoslav writers of the twentieth century.
