BELGRADE – Despite the best efforts of his readers, Chris Farmer’s new book “Grumpy in Belgrade” is hitting the bookshelves even as we speak. With respect to the owners of these bookshops, we will not mention their names here. They know who they are.
“Grumpy in Belgrade” brings together the blogs, essays, and increasingly obscure thoughts of one American in Belgrade, struggling to make sense of the nonsensical. And making nonsense of the rest.
Having appeared in Politika, Living in Belgrade (.com), Belgrade Insight, and on his B92 blog over the past few years, these essays go from the ridiculous to the (almost) sublime. Readers have laughed, cried, and organized lynch mobs in reaction to these writings.
Chris Farmer is reportedly still at large and in an undisclosed location.
