Omer Pasha Latas

release date: Oct 30, 2018
Omer Pasha Latas
A sweeping epic by Nobel Prize-winner Ivo Andrić about power, identity, and Islam set in 19th-century Ottoman Bosnia and Istanbul. Omer Pasha Latas is set in nineteenth-century Sarajevo, where Muslims and Christians live in uneasy proximity while entertaining a common resentment of faraway Ottoman rule. Omer is the seraskier, commander in chief of the Sultan’s armies, and as the book begins he arrives from Istanbul, dispatched to bring Sarajevo’s landowners to heel, a task that he accomplishes with his usual ferocity and efficiency. And yet the seraskier’s expedition to Bosnia is a time of reckoning for him as well: he was born in the Balkans, a Serb and a subject of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, a bright boy who escaped his father’s financial disgrace by running away and converting to Islam. Now, at the height of his power, he heads an army of misfits, adventurers, and outcasts from across Europe and Asia, and yet wherever he goes he remains a stranger. Ivo Andrić, who won the Nobel Prize in 1961, is a spellbinding storyteller and a magnificent stylist, and here, in his final novel, he surrounds his enigmatic central figure with many vivid and fascinating minor characters, lost souls and hopeless dreamers all, in a world that is slowly sliding towards disaster. Omer Pasha Latas combines the leisurely melancholy of Joseph Roth’s The Radetzky March with the stark fatalism of an old ballad.

A CRONICA DE TRAVNIK

A CRONICA DE TRAVNIK
Na pequena cidade bósnia de Travnik, um dos bastiões do império Otomano no começo do século XIX, coabitam muçulmanos, cristãos e judeus. No ar sente-se uma tensão quase palpável não apenas devido aos conflitos religiosos mas sobretudo pela ameaça de guerra. Napoleão está no poder em França e decide criar um consulado em Travnik. Jean Daville é o novo cônsul francês e personagem central deste romance. Mal recebido pelos habitantes de Travnik, Daville é considerado um homem fechado e impenetrável, e a sua convivência com o império Otomano é um constante choque de culturas e ideias. Passados alguns anos chega também à cidade um cônsul austríaco.
