Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bora Cosic's My Family's Role in the World Revolution enjoyed a successful run as a play, but the film version was closed immediately and ultimately caused Cosic's publications to be for over four years.

During the German occupation of Belgrade, a family--including an alarmist mother, an eternally drunk father, two young aunts who swoon over American movie stars, and a playboy uncle--attempt to find any kind of work they can do at home. When the postwar Socialist society is being ushered in after the war, the narrator becomes the slogan-spouting ideological leader of the household, while his family tries--and often fails miserably--to take part in the "great change."

This volume also includes several Cosic short stories, and recent essays on the war in the former Yugoslavia.
