Dubravka Ugreić, Lend Me Your Character
Dalkey Archive, 2005; co-translated from Croatian with the author and Celia Hawkesworth, except for two stories translated by Michael Henry Heim
Two short early books by Ugreić in one volume.
Steffie Cvek in the Jaws of Life, a "patchwork novel" of a young secretary's search for Mr. Right, is the greatest feminine and feminist postmodern book in any language. Life Is a Fairy Tale, six hilarious stories rewriting and revisiting a wide range of world literature, was a major inspiration for my book of rewritten tales What We Were Doing and Where We Were Going.
