Please click on the above to read Andrej Skubic’s Slovene translation of ‘an allergic reaction to national anthems’.

Andrej, a writer in his own right, is also the editor of Glas (Drustvo Apokalipsa 2002), an anthology of Scottish short stories which opens with Bernard Mac Laverty and closes with Donal – both from the North of Ireland, originally! It was in Glas (which means ‘Voices’) that Donal’s story first appeared in Slovene.

The translation in question is reproduced here with the kind permission of Andrej (pictured below).
