The book by a well-known publicist and psychiatrist Péter Hunčík “The Borderline Case” which was published in Hungarian under the title Határeset in 2008 by Kalligram Publishing House, has already won four literary awards. In 2010, it was finally translated into Slovak language (Hraničný prípad, translation by Magda Takáčová and Marta Ličková).
On May 30, 2011 the book was introduced by Martin Bútora, Honorary president of IVO, in Cultural Centre Danube in Bratislava. At the presentation, Péter Hunčík discussed about the state, ethnic and mental borders with writers Daniel Hevier and Pavol Rankov.
On June 8, 2011, another presentation of the novel followed in the PantaRhei bookstore in Bratislava, with Zora Bútorová from IVO as the “godmother” of the book.
