Marble skin

”The imagery in this novel is so tactile, you feel as though you are reading it with your hands instead of your eyes; its textures – marble, silk, flesh. Wood – stroke your fingertips…Drakulić has written an erotic tragedy…with a heart-wrenching power.”
Sunday Times of London

”Her writing has the spare poetry of Marguerite Duras.”
Guardian

”Marble Skin is a novel that quietly comes at you, putting ice into your blood long before you are aware of it. Ms. Drakulić deals unflinchingly, and without jargon, pop psychologizing or editorial comment, with child abuse, incest and rape , making them more horrible for the nearly suffocated voice in which her heroine speaks of them. In dealing with issues of deadly seriousness… she speaks, like her heroine, as powerfully with her silence as with her words.”

The Taste of a Man

”If love is wanting what’s best for the other person – and romance is wanting the other person – then this is the ultimate romance novel. It should be a warning to men: when women lack a sense of self, everyone is in danger.”
Gloria Steinem

A disturbingly insightful novel of love gone wrong… gruesome and highly accomplished.”
