Mr. & Mrs. Hide

Natalija Grgorinic and Ognjen Raden reading from their collaborative novel Mr. & Mrs. Hide, published by Spineless Books. The Croatian duo wrote the novel in English. There is a brief write-up on it here. The low-key & very intelligent presentation took place in a little park in Groznjan, w/muted background chorus of kids, jackhammers, & random barnyard noises. I have to buy the book and read it before making literary comparisons, but I was reminded a bit of Julio Cortazar's Autonauts of the Cosmoroute, a collaboration with his wife, Carol Dunlop.
