Seven Terrors one of Nick Lezard's Best Paperback 2014

The Guardian's list of the best paperback reads this year includes Avdic's eerie debut novel

''Seven Terrors by Selvedin Avdić (Istros) is probably the strangest and most eerie work I have read all year. It’s a sideways look at the Bosnian war, with the divisions of the country mirrored in the divisions of life: between madness and sanity, the real world and the supernatural one, presence and absence, speech and silence. It is, remarkably, Avdić’s first novel; I hope this small and adventurous publisher brings out more.''
