Since our last blog post about Chicago magazine’s story about Aleksandar Hemon’s new nonfiction collection, The Book of My Lives, several other media outlets have covered him.
Society of Midland Authors member (and 2010 SMA fiction award winner) Benjamin Percy reviewed The Book of My Lives for National Public Radio.
Christopher Borrelli profiled Hemon for the Chicago Tribune. Time Out Chicago published Laura Pearson’s Q&A with Hemon. And Rayyan Al-Shawaf reviewed the book for the Chicago Reader.
Brad Fox interviewed Hemon for Guernica. Lisa Jardine interviewed Hemon, along with Princeton history professor David Cannadine, on the BBC. And if you read Bosnian, here are a couple of articles about him in that language, at Jutarnji List and Peščanik.
Hemon speaks at 7 p.m. tonight at a Chicago Tribune Printers Row event.
