‘I couldn't resist the allure of Ivan Vladislavić's book of might-have-beens, and now I've finished it, am totally charmed by its originality and elegance.’ -- Christopher Reid, author of A SCATTERING and THE SONG OF LUNCH
Ivan Vladislavić is the author of the novels THE FOLLY, THE RESTLESS SUPERMARKET, THE EXPLODED VIEW and DOUBLE NEGATIVE. The latter first appeared in TJ/DOUBLE NEGATIVE, a joint project with the photographer David Goldblatt. Vladislavić has written extensively about Johannesburg, where he lives. PORTRAIT WITH KEYS (2006) is a sequence of documentary texts about the city. He has edited volumes on architecture and art, and published a monograph on the conceptual artist Willem Boshoff. His early stories were republished in the compendium volume FLASHBACK HOTEL in 2010. His work has won many awards, including the Sunday Times Fiction Prize and the Alan Paton Award for non-fiction.
