Riassunto: Mansarda is the first novel published by the renowned Serbian author Danilo Kis (1935-1989). Written in 1960, published in 1962, and set in contemporary Belgrade, Mandarda explores the relationship of a young man, known only as Orpheus, to the art of writing; it also tracks the personal relationship among a colorful cast of characters with nicknames such as Eurydice, Mary Magdalene, Tam-Tam, and Billy Wise Ass. Rich in references to music, painting, philosophy, and gastronomy, as well as literature, this bohemian Bildungsroman provides important perspectives on the evolution of Kis as a writer. It is a laboratory of techniques and the anvil of artistic ethos for Kis. In other words, as a work of art, Mansarda is at once a depiction of life in bohemian Belgrade, a register of stylistic devices and themes that would recur throughout Kis' oeuvre, and an account of one yong man's quest to work out one's artistic ethos and approach to representation by balancing art, life, and text. These three aspects of Mansarda add up to an admirable first novel, indeed.

About the Author: Danilo Kis was born on February 22, 1935 in the northern Serbian city of Subotica. This city, known in Hungarian as Szabadka, has long been a crossroads of cultures.


His father was Eduard Kis, a Hungarian Jew who worked for the Yugoslav railway company. Kis' mother, born Milica Dragicevic, was a Montenegrin Serb by nationality and an Orthodox Christian by religious affiliation. Eduard died in the Holocaust in 1944. Kis went to school in Cetinje and university in Belgrade. He taught at several universities in France in the 1960s and 1970s. After defending his work and his approach to the art of writing novels in several rounds of literary and political polemics within Yugoslavia, he took up more or less permanent residence in France in the 1980s. He won several significant literary awards during his life. Kis passed away on October 29, 1989 and is buried in Belgrade.
