Danilo Kiš (1935-89) was one of the most distinguished writers to emerge from communist Yugoslavia. His feud with Serbian nationalists in the 1970s was an early indicator of horrors yet to come. Birth Certificate is a 350-page study that combines biography, history and literary criticism. Supported by a Leverhulme fellowship and a grant from the Society of Authors, it is informed by the author's immersion in Kiš's work, and by research and interviews conducted over many years in half a dozen countries, including wide reading in the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, and the Yugoslav State Archives.
