Edo Popović

Edo Popović (Livno 1957) studied Comparative Literature and South Slavic Studies at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Studies in Zagreb. He is the co-founder of the literary magazine Quorum and of the Festival of Alternative Literature (FAK). Several of his books have been published in Germany by Voland & Quist.

His debut novel Midnight Boogie (1987) became a generation´s cult book. In the years between 1991 and 1995 he was Croatia´s most noted war reporter. “War is not the key for understanding my prose. There is no universal key. Each book is unique, as any human being, any squirrel, any sip of tea. Literature stirs from life – from places you have lived, jobs you have done, books you have read.”
