National Translation Month Premiere A Boat on the Lake: Short Short Stories by David Albahari Translated from the Serbian by Ellen Elias-Bursać

National Translation Month continues today with another premiere: for the first time we’re featuring translations from the Serbian language. We are thrilled to share a selection of short short stories by the acclaimed writer and playwright, David Albahari, translated by the award-winning Ellen Elias-Bursać. These short shorts were selected from Albahari’s book
Male priče. They are intriguing and fun, reading almost like prose poems—always leaving us wanting more.

We’d love to hear from you! Follow us on Twitter @TranslateMonth, tag us @TranslateMonth and share using #TranslationMonth, join our mailing list, submit a translation month event, or like our Facebook page. We hope you’ll join us and celebrate your favorite translations of writers from all over the world throughout September.
