Breaking News: New Book on the Loose!

Andy Townend:

Thrilled to see Chris has published this book!

coverBELGRADE – Despite the best efforts of his readers, Chris Farmer’s new book Grumpy in Belgrade is hitting the bookshelves even as we speak. With respect to the owners of these bookshops, we will not mention their names here. They know who they are.

“Grumpy in Belgrade” brings together the blogs, essays, and increasingly obscure thoughts of one American in Belgrade, struggling to make sense of the nonsensical. And making nonsense of the rest.

Having appeared in Politika, Living in Belgrade (.com), Belgrade Insight, and on his B92 blog over the past few years, these essays go from the ridiculous to the (almost) sublime. Readers have laughed, cried, and organized lynch mobs in reaction to these writings.

Chris Farmer is reportedly still at large and in an undisclosed location.

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge was to imagine the cover of a favourite book, album or magazine.

In a curious twist of fate, this coincided with a new edition of my book going on sale in bookshops across Belgrade, so please forgive this unashamed plug for my work…

I never imagined this would be possible back in September 2011 when I launched belgradestreets.

Thank you to all who have followed and liked my work.

And once again thank you to my friends at Komshe for all their support!

Have a great weekend!


This is my contribution to the latest Weekly Photo Challenge from The Daily Post at WordPress.
