Originally published in 2012 Perfect Place for Misery has been translated in five other langauges.

Perfect Place for Misery is the story of today’s vast European population living in big cities (in this case Paris) without any legal status: mostly illegal immigrants from other continents or Eastern Europe. Damir Karakas writes with light irony on a supremely heavy topic.

Karas is also the author of BLUE MOON ( a finalist on the Meša” Selimović Prize) and of FOREST MEMORIES.
