In the time of the Cold War, Yugoslavs looked down on citizens of Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary, further down on those who lived in Romania and Bulgaria, yet reserved their greatest contempt for the ‘backwardness’ of Albanians. Given Albania’s ironic geographical coordinates, a popular question-and-answer joke was born: What is the poorest country in the world? ) In the broader post-Yugoslav context, the phenomenon is just as easily exemplified by the 1995 declaration of then Slovenian prime minister, Janez Drnovšek, that his electorate faced a choice ‘between Europe and the Balkans’118 or the 24 Writing Postcommunism persistent Croatian insistence that the country has always been part of Central Europe: ‘What do they mean, Balkans?

It was as if Andric´’s tale of the construction of the Mehmed Paša Sokolovic´ Bridge in Višegrad and its constant destruction and reconstruction was the only suitable narrative to convey the present and historical tragedy of the Balkans. There is, however, another particular reason why writers and literature have historically been very important in eastern Europe: with the exception of Russia, eastern Europe is made up of ‘small nations’. ) In an essay entitled ‘The Provincialism of Small Nations’, Kundera elucidates the problematic nature of the relationship between writers from small nations and their homelands: The small nation inculcates in its writer the conviction that he belongs to that place alone.

The difficulty is for those who didn’t then, and those who don’t now.
