A Short History of Belgrade
- Pavić in Georgian
Translated by Guram Gogiashvili
What is it that makes Belgrade, this ancient city, distinguished from other cities, or to be more precise, why is it so interesting for Milorad Pavić? Apart from the fact that it is his home city and that all the episodes of his life are connected to it?
The book has a story, grotesque too, but the narrative and as well as separate passages are permeated more with hidden sadness and regrets. Everyone can imagine Belgrade in their own way, “the ugliest city in the world in the most beautiful place in the world“, which has more past than present, but it can be appreciated with the inner, invisible layers of human powers.
