I've only read The Bridge on the Drina (based on Annis' recommendation here). I liked it enough that I bought a collection of his short stories, The Slave Girl and Other Stories, but I haven't read it. I tend to dip in and out of short story collections, picking and choosing stories at my leisure when I'm in the mood to read them.

Read Bridge on the Drina in translation decades ago. Enjoyed it immensely.

Bodo the Apostate, a novel set during the reign of Louis the Pious and end of the Carolingian Empire.
