win pulls ivan vladislavic

I did not know that Ivan was in the margins. Several times I have paid attention to this South African writer Ivan Vladislavic. Now Ivan has won a prestigious literary prize. This helps in getting out of imaginary margins.

Leon de Kock is retired and has found time to write on Ivan Vladislavic.

  1. The key thing is that Vladislavić’s work is finally becoming available and catching the attention of a wider English speaking audience due to some great independent publishers. It is exciting and well deserved.
