Tales seeped in Balkan folklore and mystery
This week we look at two novels which draw upon Balkan folklore. Téa Obreht's "The Tiger's Wife" delves deep into Balkan legends as the protagonist uncovers mysteries about her identity and country. In a similar fashion, "How The Soldier Repairs The Gramophone" by Saša Stanišić is an imaginative tale which evokes the power of fiction making against a Balkan backdrop.
