Jury member Ijoma Mangold praises Stanišić’s volume of short stories: “Whoever likes to read how one used to listen to jazz, namely dreamily smiling, rocking the head in rhythm – that is, whoever enjoys being put into a musical-rhythmic oscillation while reading – will be in the right place with Saša Stanišić’s volume of short stories Trappers.”

Further praise from the press:
