S. is a woman of many faces: a loving wife and caring mother, a daughter, sister, and granddaughter, a friend to some and an adversary , even an enemy, to others. The aggressors who hold her captive for months in occupied Vukovar consider her only a receptacle in which to satisfy their lust and "raise their morale" until the final, bloody capitulation of the city. Who is S., really? "Busic has written a beautifully crafted novel about the neglected Croatian "comfort women" of Vukovar and transformed their suffering into a tale of strength and redemption." Janine Bertram Kemp, former Special Assistant to the Chairman, EEOC. "In “Living Cells”, Busic examines the issue of power, force, and rape, truth and lies, the parallel presence of several realities: war, post-war, and peace, but above all, the moral decline of our own civilization." Sanja Knezevic, University of Zadar, Croatia
