DaSa Drndic was a distinguished Croatian novelist and playwright. She was also been a translator, and a lecturer at the Faculty of Philosophy in Rijeka. Trieste (2012), her first novel to be translated into English, was shortlisted for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize and has now been translated into many other languages. It was followed by Leica Format (2015) and Belladonna (2017). Belladonna has been shortlisted for both the inaugural EBRD prize and the Oxford-Weidenfeld Translation Prize and received stunning reviews. DaSa Drndic died in June 2018.
The formidable Dasa Drndic has created something like a modern-day Homeric narrative of wars that are anything but glorious. In Celia Hawkesworth, she has a translator of genius who shares her vision. It is difficult to suggest a contemporary English-language novel with which to compare it, or one that might even approach its eloquence and daring. -- Eileen Battersby * Los Angeles Review of Books * Drndic has in her own way composed an astonishment that extracts light from darkness * The Jewish Daily Forward * Reading Dasa Drndic is not for the fainthearted. Anger radiates from Drndic's pages, and perhaps the book's greatest strength is the way in which it gives a voice to those people who are unable to tell their own stories. -- Shaun Walker * Guardian * This is a novel of ideas but also of exquisite poetry . . . An elegant search for lost time and a fitting valediction by a superb writer. * Kirkus * E.E.G. is a monument against the common notion that political convictions soften with age, as you learn to let the world off the hook. Neither Drndic nor her books did any such thing. -- Lidija Haas * Harper's Review * Drndic will be remembered for her outspokenness, her refusal to be quiet, her interrogation of history, and her exploration of difficult or taboo topics -- Lucy Popescu * White Review * One of the handful of truly great artists of our beleaguered epoch, her historically-based, semi-autobiographical fictions are as exhilarating as they are disturbing; dense, profound and extraordinarily readable -- Eileen Battersby * Calvert Journal * Her incisive skill and radical style render potentially grim reading compulsive. She was a voice of - and for - our times -- Amanda Hopkinson * T.L.S. * Her work is of such power and scope that had she remained alive, she would have been a contender for the Nobel Prize in Literature -- Josip Novakovich * L.A. Review of Books * Funny, angry, informed and intent on the truth, no voice is quite as blisteringly beautiful as that of Dasa Drndic . . . a major literary artist, a truthteller and custodian of the collective memory of forgotten European Jews -- Eileen Battersby * Financial Times * There is great wisdom, along with dark history, in these pages, for those ready to take on the challenge... E.E.G. reveals Drndic as a writer and thinker of ever greater relevance, a voice whose wide-ranging screeds we ignore at our peril. -- Claire Messud * Guardian *
