Yesterday there was a very successful book launch in Cinema Europa. Drakulic’s novel ‘Dora and Minotaur’ about Dora Maar was presented.
The audience had a chance to watch a documentary film ‘Dora Maar’ by the famous Croatian movie director Željko Senečić.
Books were signed and the atmosphere was terrific!
In Herald Scotland Finnish writer Sofi Oksanen talks about the impact of the Drakulic’s novel As If I am Not There on her writing.
“Suddenly, for me, a woman’s body became a metaphor for an occupied country and the use of sexual violence, be it in Europe, Africa or the Middle East today,” she said.
