FROM THE PUBLISHER-A fascinating tale of Travnik, the capital of the Turkish province of Bosnia in the early 19th century. Here Napoleon sent a French consul to watch the interests of his ever-expanding empire, and avoid checkmate by an Austrian rival. For no part of Europe is more individual than Bosnia. Here the East was brought by the Turks and their numerous Slav converts to Mahomet-right into the middle of Europe. Yet amid its mountains and forests-despite the continuing battle between Catholic and Orthodox-the land never lost its essentially Bosnian character and its sense of fellowship with the adjacent Slav lands. Ivo Andric, a Bosnian himself, was born at Travnik in 1892. Brought up there and at Visegrad on the Drina he has remained devoted to his native province and has written two striking novels with its colourful background-THE BRIDGE OVER THE DRINA and this BOSNIAN STORY. Andric vigorously portrays his native Bosnia, its people, its towns and villages, its landscape and traditions. Here the westerners feverishly struggle to maintain their standards in a Balkan maelstrom. Here is life in the raw. Ivo Andric (October 9, 1892 – March 13, 1975) was a novelist, short story writer, and the 1961 winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature from Yugoslavia (he was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, that in the time of his biggest popularity was a part of Yugoslavia). His novels The Bridge on the Drina and Chronicles of Travnik / The Days of the Consuls dealt with life in Bosnia under the Ottoman Empire. Andric was born on October 9, 1892 of Croat parentage in the village of Dolac near Travnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, then part of the Ottoman Empire, under occupation by Austria-Hungary. Originally named Ivan, he became known by the diminutive Ivo. When Andric was two years old, his father died. Because his mother was too poor to support him, he was raised by his mother's family in the eastern Bosnian town of Viegrad on the river Drina. There he saw the Ottoman Bridge, later made famous in the novel The Bridge on the Drina. Andric attended the Jesuit gymnasium in Travnik, followed by Sarajevo's gymnasium and later the universities in Zagreb, Vienna, Krakow and Graz. Because of his political activities, Andric was imprisoned by the Austrian government during World War I (first in Maribor and later in the Doboj detention camp) alongside civilian Serbs and pro-Yugoslavs. Under the newly-formed Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (later the Kingdom of Yugoslavia) Andric became a civil servant, first in the Ministry of Faiths and then the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he pursued a successful diplomatic career, as Deputy Foreign Minister and later Ambassador to Germany. Ivo greatly opposed the movement of Stjepan Radic, the president of the Croatian Peasant Party, at occasions calling the people that support him as fools that follow the footsteps of a blind dog. His ambassadorship ended in 1941 after the German invasion of Yugoslavia. During World War II, Andric lived quietly in Belgrade, completing the three of his most famous novels which were published in 1945, including The Bridge on the Drina. After the war, Andric held a number of ceremonial posts in the new Communist government of Yugoslavia, including that of the member of the presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1961, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature ‘for the epic force with which he has traced themes and depicted human destinies drawn from the history of his country. ' He donated all the prize money for the improvement of libraries in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Following the death of his wife in 1968, he began reducing his public activities....
