Keeping the House by Tice Cin
Croatian writer Daša Drndić’s penultimate novel – its sequel EEG is also published in English by MacLehose Press – confronts the horrors inflicted on her native country and on Europe as a whole in the last century with a candour and sharpness of thought that is almost embarrassing in its completeness. From the Holocaust to the catastrophe of Yugoslavia’s collapse in the 1990s Drndić’s piercing search for the truth is unblinking. As Eileen Battersby wrote in the Los Angeles Review of Books ‘Belladonna is brutal, beautiful and unforgettable ... One of the truly outstanding novels of recent years.’
