Robert Perišić

In his home country of Croatia, Robert Perisic is a bestselling author who came to prominence during the 1990s, writing with a clear anti-war sentiment. Today, he is considered one of the most important writers and journalists in the country. He has published award-winning nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and criticism in his native language.
When first published in Croatia in 2008, Our Man in Iraq spent eight weeks at the top of the country’s bestseller list and won the prestigious Jutarnji List award. On July 1, 2013, Croatia will draw global media attention when it accedes to the European Union. Our Man in Iraq is an unforgettable introduction to a vibrant Croatian voice we have been sorely missing here in North America, published in time to celebrate a new focus on the Balkan nation and its literary culture.
