Michael  Stavarič - Gotland


“An exploratory intoxication that stimulates one’s own mental cinema with crazed images of Gotland as a mysterious place, somewhere between paradise and zombieland.”


“The interplay between deceptive harmonious realism and unchained fantasy is what distinguishes this novel of immense compositional energy and passion for storytelling.”


"This is a remarkable story told in a digressive and experimental manner. The playful, intertextual narrative conceals a pleasingly unpredictable twist that keeps its readers guessing."

New Books in German

"A tremendous novel that demonstrates how close reason and irrationality, normativity and madness, faith in science and fantasy are."


"A wild, poetic novel and different from everything else Michael Stavarič has hitherto written."

Deutschlandradio Kultur

"A bizarre and yet consistent novel which shines as brilliantly with its construction as with the courageous exploration of one damaged."


“A lavish piece of literature that more than once lets the laughter of the rogue be heard.”

Wiener Zeitung

"Gotland is a gallant book, the work of a fantasist with a pronounced leaning towards the off-beat."

ORF Radio FM4

"The topics of belief and doubt embedded in a vivid narrative, both amusing and insistent – magnificent."

Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten

"Stavaric does not simply write novels; he plays with form and language without sacrificing his joy at spinning yarns to formal construction."

Pinzgauer Nachrichten

"High time for a Stavaric novel to be filmed."


"Readable adventure."

Tiroler Tageszeitung

“Divinely strange.”

Kronen Zeitung

“Michael Stavaric plays cheerfully and unsettlingly with images of the Divinity.”

Stuttgarter Zeitung
