ABOUT THIS BOOK
The first novel by the preeminent Slovenian author Drago Jancar to be published in English, Mocking Desire is a brilliant exploration of conflicting states of experience and comprehension.

Gregor Gradnik, a Slovenian writer, enters the sensual and seething life of New Orleans to teach a creative writing class at a university. Gregor at first acts as only an observer, yet seductive New Orleans soon draws him into a series of bizarre erotic, professional, and social relationships. A profound and entertaining work, Mocking Desire provides the English-speaking world with the perfect introduction to one of Eastern Europe's leading writers.
