Sponsor UNFINISHED CITY by Ben Dickson, Sylvija Martinović and Robert Solanović
Unfinished City is a powerful, stylish thriller with a sharp, East-European edge. Nadja’s home town of Nikšić is a real place; many elements of the story are drawn from Sylvija’s experience of living in the city, and the stories that circulated at the time. This will undoubtedly be a controversial book in the Balkans – so much so that Sylvija and Ben had to consciously distance some elements from real life!
The book is being illustrated in glorious, shadowy black and white by cult Croatian artist Robert Solanović. A highly-regarded artist in the Balkans, this will be Robert’s first English language work.
Incentives include a first look PDF, signed paperback and hardback editions of the graphic novel, an exclusive T-Shirt and much more. Info at: www.kickstarter.com
