Is this something I should know about?
Not necessarily... Ivo Andric
was a Nobel prize-winning Yugoslavian author. I don't know how famous he is worldwide, I guess he is moderately well known, and I know that many of his works have been translated to English and many other languages. Among other things, he wrote a novella called Anikina vremena
(I don't know if it was ever published in English - had to google it to see how the title was translated in English, apparently it's Legends of Anika
, but that may be just the translation of the title of the film adaptation made in 1950s http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0173645/
) Anika is the name of the main female character, the title actually means something like "The times of Anika" or "Anika's times". I had to read several of his works in elementary and high school, but that one wasn't among them - that one I read because the subject seemed interesting.
