Farces & Novellas

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The Croatian writer Janko Polić Kamov died in Barcelona in 1910 aged 23. He left behind a small but potent collection of short stories, plays, poems and one novel which have been labelled as proto-modernist, avant-garde, absurdist, existentialist, futurist and even surrealist in nature. This is a collection of eight of his farces and four novellas painstakingly translated from Croatian into English. Many of the themes in Kamov's writings would reflect his real life experiences and are written in the first person or as his alter ego. During his short life he struggled to be accepted and published as a professional poet, dramatist and novelist. He is considered to be highly original writer for the period, despising bourgeois hypocrisy, injustice, ridiculing the social norms and niceties of the day. His work also deals with the darker side of the human psyche, madness, violence, sexual excess, alcohol, religious duality, the class system, poverty and the overall human condition. Most of his work didn't see the light of day until long after his death. He has been compared to Camus, Kafka and Joyce. The collection has been translated by Martin Mayhew so that his work can be appreciated outside of his native country and in doing so also creating a unique glossary of Kamov's vocabulary. This book has also be produced in the hope of funding for the translation of more of this outstanding author's work.
