App Alert: Aleksandar Hemon and Love and Obstacles

Love and Obstacles is an app featuring short fiction by Bosnian-American author Aleksandar Hemon, author of The Lazarus Project, Nowhere Man and the collection from which the material on the app is taken, also titled Love and Obstacles.
The app features video, audio and ebook content from the collection. Hemon reads a story; there is a video version of another story and you can read another. There are also links to purchase the book.

I'm a fan of Hemon's and really enjoyed exploring some of his recent work with the aid of this app. If you're a fan of his, or think you might be, and you own an iPhone or iPad,  I recommend that you check it out! The app is free to download from the iTunes store.

Cool idea! I'm a BB user, but apps are one of the reasons I think about going back to iPhone.

If you like Aleksandar Hemon and haven't yet read his recent piece in The New Yorker, it's devastating. I recommend it.
