The Balkan Express

”Moving and eloquent.”
New York Times

”Through short but deeply felt essays on everything from house paint and high heeled shoes to point-blank murder, Drakulić tells us the story of the Balkan crisis as people are living it. This is firsthand war reporting without body counts or strategic analyses: in-depth political commentary wothout the statements of presidents or the opinions of self-appointed experts. Drakulić focuses on individual lives…using the perversions that war forces onto everyday life to reveal the true complexity of the crisis and the enormity of the task of reconcilliation.”
The Nation

”In the tradition of George Orwell‘s Shooting an Elephant or Primo levi’s writings on Auschwitz, Drakulić has soughtand found illumination by focusing on the details of daily life under pressure.”
Boston Phoenix

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.”
