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.”
New York Times Book Review
