Om Golden Legend and the Flowers of Sanctit
In this book, Mahmutefendi has cheered us up with his texts, which were conceived as novels but never completed, as well as with dialogues, tricks, and situations that have ended up as a burr to some prose. Some will recognize in them tinges of Gogol, or perhaps Kharms, Domanovi, or even Nui, as well as works like childrens memory books, anonymous letters, secret diaries, and various fun and boring newspapers. All these bits and pieces constantly intertwine, swarm, and burst, creating one artistic world, the world of Sead Mahmutefendi, a wizard with the terrible power of imagination, a wizard who, from scattered nonsensicalities, creates an astonishing sense of existence. His most significant works are the novels Kelvins Zero, Fish and One-Eyed Jack, The Centrifugal Citizens, Teasing of Salko Pirija, Demons, Like in a Movie, and Placebo: The Beauty and Horror of Lies, as well as the books of columns and essays, A Memorandum for the Reconquista and The Big and Small Cannibals. Sead Mahmutefendis books have been translated into English, Russian, French, Italian, Macedonian, Armenian, and Danish.
