Café Europa : life after communism by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )

35 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 910 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 )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and German and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket

Marble skin : a novel by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )

33 editions published between 1989 and 2000 in 10 languages and held by 439 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

Über Wochen und Monate hat Slavenka Drakulic die Verhandlungen sowohl vor dem Internationalen Kriegsverbrechertribunal in Den Haag als auch in Kroatien mitverfolgt, hat die Verhöre genauso wie den Alltag der Angeklagten beobachtet und erfahren, wie aus unauffälligen jungen Männern Mörder und aus Nachbarn Todfeinde wurden. Über die blutrote Spur, die die "ethnischen Säuberungen" von der Kraijna bis nach Sarajevo und in den Kosovo zogen, wird darin berichtet und über das Massaker von Srebrenica, wo innerhalb weniger Tage 7000 muslimische Männer ermordet und Tausende Frauen vertrieben wurden, über die gespenstischen Auftritte von Slobodan Milosevic und immer wieder darüber, "daß es keine Gerechtigkeit ohne Wahrheit gibt."
Optužena by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pet godina nakon Fride Slavenka Drakulić ponovo piše o boli, ali ovaj put u prvom planu nije fizička bol, nego duboka emocionalna trauma. Optužena je roman o zlostavljanju u obitelji, o majkama koje zlostavljaju svoje kćeri. U ime ljubavi, naravno. U njemu se, s puno nijansi, opisuje i jedna zastrašujuće opsesivna muško-ženska veza, ali u središtu je ipak prikaz majke koja sustavno zlostavlja svoju djevojčicu. Majka optužene udala se unatoč protivljenju obitelji, no vrlo brzo nakon rođenja djeteta brak se raspao. Roditelji joj dopuštaju da ponovo živi s njima, ali pod jednim uvjetom - mora prekinuti sve kontakte s bivšim mužem. Kad ona ipak obnovi vezu s njim, zatvara se nevjerojatan krug boli i patnje - kći je često paravan za njihove susrete, ali poslije majka ulaže silne napore kako bi je spriječila da na bilo koji način oda koga su vidjele. Metode treninga i kazni za propuste su zastrašujuće, a fascinantan je pogled u svijest žrtve koja se beznadno koprca u mreži ljubavi i boli. Slavenka Drakulić napisala je potresan i uznemirujući roman koji sasvim sigurno spada u vrh njenog opusa. To je roman koji ćete pročitati brzo, ali o njemu ćete razmišljati dugo nakon što zaklopite korice"--Cover and
Mileva Einstein, teorija žalosti by Slavenka Drakulić( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in Croatian and Slovenian and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slavenka Drakulić je v romansirani biografiji opisala nelahko življenjsko pot prve žene slavnega fizika Alberta Einsteina, Mileve Marić Einstein. Mileva je bila rojena v premožni družini v Vojvodini, nadpovprečno inteligentna je bila edina ženska svojega časa, ki je študirala na švicarskii Politehniki. Tu je spoznala Alberta, njuna zveza se je začela s skupnim zanimanjem za znanost, za nove ideje ter prerasla v ljubezen in poroko. Mileva je možu požrtvovalno pomagala pri matematičnih izračunih in razvoju teorije relativnosti, rodila mu je tri otroke, hčerko in dva sinova. Po smrti hčerke si Mileva psihično ni nikoli opomogla, ni ji uspelo diplomirati, zakonca sta se odtujila. Albert si je našel novo družico, Mileva je ponižana s sinovoma odšla. Avtorica je ustvarila pretresljiv intimni portret ženske, ki ji življenje do smrti ni prizanašalo, vendar je kljub osebnim tragedijam vztrajala ter s tem izkazala svojo veličino

7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in Croatian and Serbian and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Knjiga se sastoji od šest basni, koje priča šest različitih životinja, i svaka se iz tog neobičnog "životinjskog" kuta bavi jednom od bivših komunističkih zemalja Istočne Europe. O Istočnoj Njemačkoj priča nam tako krtica koja pokušava shvatiti zašto su ljudi kopali tunele ispod Berlinskog zida i kroz njih bježali na Zapad, dašak poljske drame donosi nam mačka generala Jaruzelskog koja je bila svjedok njegovih dvojbi prilikom proglašenja vojnog puča, o situaciji u Albaniji izvještava nas gavran koji je prisustvovao samoubojstvu premijera Shehua ... U priči o Jugoslaviji glavni je junak, naravno, Titov papagaj Koki koji se, pričajući s nekim turistom na Brijunima, prisjeti i Tuđmana i Mesića."--Page 4 of cover
