Welcome, intrepid internaut! Somehow, you have navigated yourself to the website of 21st century proletarian writer Daniel K. Buntovnik. Give yourself a pat on the back, because this delightful encounter is no small feat, impossible if not for the avant-garde initiative taken on your end.
Daniel K. Buntovnik is a low-income twentysomething subject of the Rromani diaspora living in one of the former “people’s democracies” of Eastern Europe, although he originates from America–having been baptized in Brooklyn–this adding more layers to the diasporic sense of longing which has in many ways inspired his journey to and away from home.
His goal as a writer is to contribute to the development of a movement which he calls “21st Century Proletarian Literature” through the production of engaging, sometimes humorous and sometimes fantastic texts which bring together art and politics under one transmodern, communist umbrella.
The first novel authored by Daniel K. Buntovnik is a satirical geopolitical thriller called Raving Radicals Bathed in Blax. A prototype of this novel was published on this website in 49 installments throughout the summer and into the autumn of 2015. Trade paperback copies of the definitive first edition were made available on 27 November 2016 and can be purchased here. Read more about this story and find a table of contents here (or through the navigation scheme at the top of the page).
(third person out) Check out my blog for updates and the occasional post on a ‘random’ topic. I have archived the essays which I’ve published there here. Also don’t miss my short stories, like “Meatpacker Jack” and “The Coma-Contra Affair”.
