Josip Novakovich moved to the US from Croatia at the age of twenty. His work depicts the struggles of immigrants as well as his own experience. Writing in multiple genres (fiction and nonfiction), his work explores social diversity, cultural dissolution, and the struggles of writing in a second language. His most recent work includes the novel April Fool's Day, the short story collection Yolk, and the nonfiction collections Apricots from Chernobyl: Narratives and Plum Brandy: Croation Journeys. Novakovich has received the Whiting Writer's Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and other citations. [extracted from 2004 brochure]
