Praise For Cyclops

"Marinkovic splices scenes of dream and reality into a kaleidoscopic short history of the world, whose pessimism is tempered by dark humor."—The New Yorker


"One of the most outstanding Croatian novels of the postwar period."—Valentina Zanca, Words Without Borders
-Valentina Zanca

"Among the most highly regarded novels of postwar Croatian literature. . . .The style is the point [of the novel], especially as it conveys the psychological intensity, the nihilism, of that place and time."—M. Kasper, CHOICE
-M. Kasper
