The winner of the 2006 "Isidora Sekulic" Award is Zoran Zivkovic's novel THE BRIDGE. The award will be presented at a ceremony in the Belgrade City Hall on June the 12th.
The award, named after one of the greatest Serbian female writers and essayists of the 20th century, is a major mainstream literary prize that also includes 2,500 euros (US$3,300).
THE BRIDGE was previously short-listed for the NIN Award - Serbia's major literary award.
The UK limited edition of THE BRIDGE will be published before the end of the year by PS Publishing.
Congratulations to Zoran! Didya know he's also sold film rights to several of his stories in recent months? No? Well, he has. Verily, an in-demand writer if ever there was one.
