Café Europa : life after communism by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )
28 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this brilliant work of political reportage filtered through her own experience, we see that Europe remains a divided continent. In the place of the fallen Berlin Wall, there is a chasm between East and West, consisting of the different way people continue to live and understand the world. Are these differences a communist legacy, or do they run even deeper? What divides us today? To say simply that it is the understanding of the past, or a different concept of time, is not enough. But a visitor to this part of the world will soon discover that the Eastern Europeans live in another time zone. They live in the twentieth century, but at the same time they inhabit a past full of myths and fairy tales, of blood and national belonging
They would never hurt a fly : war criminals on trial in The Hague by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )

"Drawing partly on her own observations of the trials, partly on other sources, Drakulic portrays some of the individuals accused of murder, rape, torture, ordering executions, and more during the war that tore apart Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Notable among them are former Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic; Radislav Krstic, the first to be sentenced for genocide; Biljana Plavsic, the only woman accused of war crimes; and Ratko Mladic, in hiding and being tried in absentia. Drakulic also tells the stories of Milan Levar, a war veteran and witness who was murdered when he tried to speak out, and of Mirjana Mira Markovic, the influential wife of Milosevic."--BOOK JACKET

Marble skin : a novel by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A sculptor carves a statue out of ice-cold, smooth, glittering marble and calls it "My Mother's Body." Her mother sees the sculpture, recognizes in it all the pain and frustration of their relationship over the years, and tries to take her own life. Forced together by this near tragedy, the daughter sits at her mother's bedside and relives her childhood years, confronting the specter of sexual conflict that haunts their pasts." "Remembering this remote and beautiful woman, she must also remember the man who invaded their lives long ago, who insinuated and seduced his way first into her mother's affections and then, unforgiveably, into her own ..." "Creating a scandal when it was first published in the former Yugoslavia, this provocative and immensely readable novel explodes one of the last taboos in our western culture - the image of the sexual mother. Marble Skin explores the darkest recesses of the female psyche and exposes the destructive power of sexual desire when forced to compete with the bonds of maternal love." "A worthy successor to her previous novel Holograms of Fear, Marble Skin should guarantee Slavenka Drakulic her position as one of the most influential women writing in Europe today."--Jacket

Als gäbe es mich nicht : Roman by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Die namenlose 'S.', eine aus Bosnien stammende Asylantin, bringt in einer Stockholmer Klinik einen Sohn zu Welt, das schreckliche Ende unzähliger Vergewaltigungen, denen S. und ihre Leidensgenossinnen in einem serbischen Frauenkonzentrationslager ausgeliefert waren. S. erinnert sich an Stationen des vergangenen Jahres: die Vertreibung aus Sarajewo, das KZ in Bosnien, ein Flüchtlingslager in Kroatien, der Aufbruch ins Asyl. In die Haut dieser S. schlüpfen, beschreibt S. Drakulic, Autorin und Journalistin von Rang (BA 4/98; 12/98) die Qualen der gepeinigten Frauen, Verletzungen, Demütigungen, Grauen, Angst, Ekel. In radikaler Deutlichkeit schildert sie, was geschehen ist, 'der Stummheit eine Stimme gebend'. Eine beklemmende, erschütternde Lektüre, ein Buch, dem sich zu stellen schwer fällt. Geschrieben in nüchtern-sachlicher Sprache, deren Fluss bewusst unterbrochen wird durch geschliffen-kritische, in Sperrdruck gesetzte Reflexionen. Als Plädoyer für die schuldlos in Kriege Verwickelten sehr empfohlen
