at the end of the last word in ”the Raven”, my reaction in the moment, without blocking the reflection. It was not possible to hold them back. I was applauding. It must have been like for the first time. I was a bit taken by surprise. But a happy one. Dubravka Ugresic , is back. And ”the Raven” is a great, powerful, and healthy svårsummerad of the novel.
in the Novel? No, I don't know. Or, perhaps not.
In the book, she moves like a restless exilakrobat of Europe's towns and cities. Moscow, Naples, London, and her home town of Zagreb and the city of Amsterdam. And as a restless, between the memories, scattered notes on small pieces of paper, and a romantic love story between the ancient Croatian minefields, geeky, digs of the Russian avantgardister who were killed during the Stalinterrorn, conversations in cafes and the essäistiska reflections on the relation between life and writing.
