Presenting Ivan Vladislavic’s New Collection of Short Stories: 101 Detectives

Ivan Vladislavic

 
101 DetectivesUmuzi is proud to present 101 Detectives, a collection of short stories from award-winning author Ivan Vladislavić:

A private-eye convention and a tussle over a Pierneef. A young man’s unsettling experience in the American South and a tragedy off the coast of Mauritius. A bizarre night of industrial theatre and a translator at a loss for words.

These are but a few of the fictions in 101 Detectives, a new collection of short stories by Vladislavić, one of South Africa’s most celebrated authors.

A collection of short stories launched his career as a writer. 26 years and a whole oeuvre later, 101 Detectives showcases Vladislavić’s virtuosity as he bends and recasts this literary form in spectacular fashion.
