Description

This is a string of newly translated as well as already published stories by the classic Serbian author of the greatest significance in Eastern European literature. This volume includes numerous examples of the oppression of women and the disaster that ensues if any should defy the established rules. In addition to evoking this society, Andric has woven into it a more personal experience of the categories which society assigns to women.
