Description

A whole world seems to orbit within "Nobody's Home". It's a world that looks familiar but strange. Dubravka Ugresic takes us on her whirligig travels through Europe, and across to the US, offering her insightful and unique perspectives on literature, geopolitics, East and West. She wryly points out that while the Eastern bloc is gripped by Western modernization, the West is becoming increasingly Sovietized, with Internet banking, speed dating and automatic supermarket checkouts. And she doesn't stop there. She's got something to say about everything from flea markets and souvenirs to celebrity and slavery, in this kaleidoscopic tour de force.

Author Biography

Dubravka Ugresic has been compared favourably with writers such as Vladimir Nabokov, Joseph Brodsky, Milan Kundera and Virginia Woolf, and has been awarded many prizes. She entered self-imposed exile when Croatia's late president, Franjo Tudjman, proclaimed Croatia to be 'paradise on earth' in the early 1990s.
