کتاب گشتی در موزه کمونیسم

اثر اسلاونکا دراکولیچ از انتشارات هنوز - مترجم: سما قرایی-ادبیات داستانی

A wry, cutting deconstruction of the Communist empire by one of Eastern Europes exceptional authors.

Called "a perceptive and amusing social critic, with a wonderful eye for detail" by The Washington Post, Slavenka Drakulic-a native of Croatia-has emerged as one of the most popular and respected critics of Communism to come out of the former Eastern Bloc. In A Guided Tour Through the Museum of Communism, she offers a eight-part exploration of Communism by way of an unusual cast of narrators, each from a different country, who reflect on the fall of Communism. Together they constitute an Orwellian send-up of absurdities during the final years of European Communism that showcase this authors tremendous talent.

From Publishers Weekly

Drakulic, Croatian journalist and author of Café Europa, presents a condensed and whimsical history of Communism filtered through the perspective of animals who share little tales that largely focus on figures like Tito and Ceausescu. Along the way, Drakulic achieves a measured (if silly) survey of communism and its fall that is neither vitriolic nor nostalgic, nor wholly cynical or awed by Western capitalism. Running throughout is an awareness of how the past is eroding, with young people blissfully unaware of history. The animal narrators—a mouse, a bear, a dog among them—are generally charming, though the harshness of the books subject and the quaintness of its methodology makes for odd pairings, with some of the attempted lightheartedness coming off as awkward or just plain botched (as with the pig who is supposedly writing an introduction to a cookbook but instead goes on a political screed). Its a strange project, partially successful, and likely to hold undeniable appeal to a limited audience. (Mar.)
