Balla (*1967) / Slovakia

Balla is one of the most interesting contemporary Slovak writers. He is known for his absurd stories depicting a whole bunch of lonely and alienated individuals unable to establish a relationship with other people. The driving force in his stories is often conflicting family relationships, and although his attitude may be pessimistic, humour is not missing in Balla's prose. His collection of short stories, Alive, was translated into Czech in 2008.
