The Serbian Connection I: The Bridge on The Drina

In this episode, the first of a two part installment in collaboration with my dear Serbian friend, Ivan Praštalo, we get together to talk about The Bridge on The Drina, the best known novel by Yugoslav author Ivo Andrić, winner of the Nobel Prize in 1961.

You can read Andrić’s short story “Death in Sinan’s Monastery” (specially recommended by Ivan) here.
