Davor Mandić

Davor Mandić (born 1976) is an up-and-coming name in Croatian literature who, after his first remarkable poem collection Bridges / Mostovi (Croatian Writer’s Society, 2009), published his first book of stories One Must Imagine Me Happy (Ljevak, 2014) which was unanimously declared original, witty, cleverly written and unique among the usual practice by Croatian and regional critics. This book earned Mandić a grant from the Ministry of culture which was also the case with his next book, a novel that is being published in the fall of 2016.
