This text is an attempt to interpret the novel «Alexander and Death» (Aleksandar i smrtta) by Macedonian author Slobodan Mickovik through the prism of postmodern historical novel (historiographic metafiction). The novel creates an apocryphal history about the ancient conqueror Alexander the Great, fictionally and revisionistic filling the gaps, i. e. «dark areas» within the official historiography. The interpretative framework, mainly, is based on the theoretical conceptions of this genre. The aim of the identification of the model of ex-centric (hi)story in Mickovik’s novel is to confirm the metahistorical implications of the literature/novel regarding history: the way of constructing the versions of history with revisionistic presage. In this case, ex-centric hi-story refers to the revision of historical record, in the sense of its re-interpretation through demystifying or debunking the orthodox version of past.
