Saša  Stanišić - Trappers


"Saša Stanišić, who hails from Visegrad, is a blessing for German literature."


"A highly talented and passionate narrator."


"Anything Saša Stanišić touches with language comes alive; the characters become tangible, the worlds strangely familiar. Then there is this sense of humour: great movie pictures going through the mind!"

Juli Zeh

“Stanišić is no distanced ironic mocker, but rather a gifted humorist. He considers each of his figures with unconditional sympathy. [...] This is rare”


"These stories are satisfying in their density, cleverness, and variety of themes. Many worlds on few pages."

rbb kulturradio

"[...] whoever enjoys being put into a musical-rhythmic oscillation while reading [...] will be in the right place with Sasa Stanisic’s volume of short stories."

Die Zeit

"Every third sentence wants to be underlined, yet it is seldom so distinctive, though enthrallingly humorous, and at least enchantingly original."


"Great literature – authentic, multilayered, and peculiar."

NDR Fernsehen

"Stanišić’s stories are filled with humour and brilliant formulations."

Zeit Online

"In a language to which one would like to waltz, he has created characters [...] whom one would gladly accompany on the journeys this fantastic author sends them on."


"Stanišić has a masterful command of this."

Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung

"This wonderful storyteller who perceives and makes use of the most beautiful sounds from Germans."

Berliner Zeitung

"What can one do otherwise than to praise Saša Stanišić? Everyone does this. And so they should."

Der Freitag

"Uncommonly artful stories."

Kieler Nachrichten

"Humorous and politically and heartily incorrect."

Basler Zeitung

"Unforgettable scenes […] One will want to do back-flips for pleasure."

Denis Scheck, 3sat Kulturzeit

"Every third sentence demands to be underlined, though seldom striking, yet rapturously humorous, and at least enchantingly original."

Der Tagesspiegel

"Great literature – authentic, multifaceted, and eccentric."

NDR Kulturjournal

"After two outstanding novels, Saša Stanišić proves with his collection of short stories that he can create something great in a short form as well."

Neue Zürcher Zeitung

"We readers can be grateful for the gifts that Saša Stanišić gives us through his books."


"Like Stanišić’s previous books, Trappers is a well-reviewed bestseller in Germany, full of funny, unique characters and absurd plot twists."

New Books in German

"The games to be played with words are at the heart of this surprising, entertaining and endlessly rewarding collection."
