Baba Yaga laid an egg by Dubravka Ugrešić( Book )

41 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in 10 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culture of lies : antipolitical essays by Dubravka Ugrešić( Book )

52 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in 9 languages and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ugresic's acerbic and penetrating essays cover everything from politics to daily routine, from public to private life. With a diverse and unusual perspective, she writes about memory, soap operas, the destruction of everyday life, kitsch, the conformity of intellectuals, propaganda and censorship, the strategies of human manipulation and the walls of Europe which, she argues, never really did fall."--BOOK JACKET. "Shot through with irony and sadness, satirical protest and bitter melancholy, The Culture of Lies is a gesture of intellectual resistance by a writer branded 'a traitor' and 'a witch' in Croatia."--Jacket
Thank you for not reading : essays on literary trivia by Dubravka Ugrešić( Book )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thank You for Not Reading is a biting critique of book publishing: agents, subagents, and scouts, supermarket-like bookstores, Joan Collins, book fairs that have little to do with books, authors promoted because of sex appeal instead of merit, and editors trying to look like writers by having their photograph taken against a background of bookshelves. Nowadays, the best strategy for young authors wanting to publish is to become famous in some other capacity first - as a sports star, an actress, or an Ivana Trump." "Consisting of essays and fiction, Thank You for Not Reading is one of those rare books that is both playful and critical."--Jacket

Fording the stream of consciousness by Dubravka Ugrešić( Book )

35 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in 7 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the style of David Lodge, the novel is filled with colorful characters and hilarious scenes; but amid the lighthearted action Ugresic provides a serious and doubly outsidered perspective on the differences between the worlds of Eastern Europe and the West. Through the eyes of her Yugoslav and Russian characters Ugresic expresses the incredulity that many in Eastern Europe felt at the Western tendency to romanticize the "communist" world; simultaneously, through her American character, she explodes many of the myths of the West in the minds of Eastern Europe. In addressing issues of mutual cultural misunderstanding without attempting to impose artificial solutions to the problems, Ugresic has produced a truly successful multicultural novel."--Jacket
Karaoke culture by Dubravka Ugrešić( Book )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past three decades, Dubravka Ugrešić has established herself as one of Europe's greatest-- and most entertaining-- thinkers and creators, and it's in her essays that Ugrešić is at her sharpest. With laser focus, she pierces our pop culture, dissecting the absurdity of daily life with a wit and style that's all her own. Whether it's commentary on jaded youth, the ways technology has made us soft in the head, or how wrestling a hotel minibar into a bathtub is the best way to stick it to The Man, Ugresic writes with unmatched honesty and panache."--Back cover
