Mileva Einstein oder Die Theorie der Einsamkeit in Sächsische Zeitung

Sächsische Zeitung brings a review of the Mileva Einstein oder Die Theorie der Einsamkeit. 

“The well-known Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulić, as always, has a fine sense for the uphevals, the ups and downs in a relationship, as in her novel about Dora Maar and Pablo Picasso. She shows the interdependency of a man and a woman, where not everything speaks for her and against him”, writes Monika Melchert at the end of the review.
