Other literary forms
Dobrica osi (CHOH-seech) is primarily a novelist, but he has also written a series of books and articles on sociopolitical themes, collected in the books Sedam dana u Budimpeti (1957; seven days in Budapest) and Akcija (1965; action). These books gave osi opportunities to express his views on various ideological, political, and cultural problems that have preoccupied him his entire adult life. They shed some light on his novels, but, for the most part, they reflect the other half of the author’s sphere of interest. Among the other significant books that osi has published in addition to his novels are Stvarno i mogue (1982; real and possible), Pievi zapisi (2000-2004, 4 volumes; writer’s notes), Kosovo (2004), and Prijatelji (2005; friends). These volumes collect osi’s articles and notes, offering a gold mine of details about the author’s thinking and experiences in his various activities, especially in his literary life.
