The Attic is Danilo Kis' first novel. Written in 1960, published in 1962, and set in contemporary Belgrade, it explores the relationship of a young man, known only as Orpheus, to the art of writing; it also tracks his relationship with a colorful cast of characters with nicknames such as Eurydice, Mary Magdalene, Tam-Tam, and Billy Wise Ass. Rich with references to music, painting, philosophy, and gastronomy, this bohemian Bildungsroman is a laboratory of technique and style for the young Kis at once a depiction of life in literary Belgrade, a register of stylistic devices and themes that would recur throughout Kis' oeuvre, and an account of one young man s quest to find a way to balance his life, his loves, and his art.
