Synopsis:

The Culture of Lies is one of the most intelligent and lucid accounts of an appalling episode in history. It shows us the banality and brutality of nationalism and the way that nationalistic ideology permeates every pore of life. Ugre?i?'s acerbic and penetrating essays cover everything from politics to daily routine, from public to private life.

With a diverse and unusual perspective, she writes about memory, soap operas, the destruction of everyday life, kitsch, the conformity of intellectuals, propaganda and censorship, the strategies of human manipulation and the walls of Europe which, she argues, never really did fall.

Shot through with irony and sadness, satirical protest and bitter melancholy, The Culture of Lies is a gesture of intellectual resistance by a writer branded 'a traitor' and 'a witch? in Croatia.

About the Author:

Dubravka Ugre?i? is the author of many books, including four that have been translated into English: In the Jaws of Life and Other Stories (1993), Fording the Stream of Consciousness (1993), Have a Nice Day (1994), and The Museum of Unconditional Surrender (1998). She was awarded the prestigious Charles Veillon Prize in 1996 for The Culture of Lies. Since 1993 she has lived in exile in Amsterdam and frequently lectures in the United States.
