Read Kissani Jugoslavia Online Free - Lahjakkaan nuoren kirjoittajan maaginen esikoisromaani juuriltaan revitystä perheestä, mahdottomasta rakkaudesta, kuolemanpelosta ja kauniista kissasta

Tyttö varttuu Jugoslavian maaseudulla, missä naisen arvo mitataan työnteossa ja kyvyssä miellyttää miestä. Häiden jälkeen hänen asemastaan ei ole epäilystäkään. Kun koko liittovaltio hajoaa perheen ympäriltä, elämää uudessa kotimaassa alkavat hallita pelko ja häpeä.

Hänen poikansa kasvaa kylmään maahan, missä muualta tullutta käsketään tyytymään vähään ja olemaan kiitollinen. Hän ostaa itselleen kuningasboan, ja baarista löytyvä oikukas kissa johdattaa hänet vavisuttavalle matkalle menneisyyden kerroksiin.

I would really like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy of this book! Translated from Finnish and set in the backdrop of the Yugoslav war, it follows two narrative that intertwine of a mother and son, where we get to know the rest of the family. Emine, who is married off to someone she b...

Years ago I remember wishing I could experience a bit of what immigrants experience, or that some could communicate their experiences in ways I could understand. They’d started out somewhere I’d never been, and they’d arrived somewhere they’d never imagined. Like Finland. Cold, white, communal, w...

Pajtim Statocvi kertoi tarinan, jonka lähtömaa oli Jugoslavia. Sellaista maata ei enää ole, sillä se on hajonnut. Sota, vainot, pakolaisuus, maahanmuutto, maahanmuutajana asuminen vieraassa maassa, nuo ilmiöt tulevat hyvin esille Kissani Jugoslavia teoksessa. Rinnan oman erilaisuuden hyväksymisen...

Shame on the publisher for inflicting this unripened novel on the world. The Kosovar mom's story is heart-rending and realistically told, but the interleaved narrative of her gay son, a refugee in Finland, is simply awful: he is nothing but a conglomeration of resentments, ideas, and neuroses. Hi...

Loved this book! I'm not sure if I would describe this as a book for cat lovers, though people who love cats and snakes will find it engrossing - this is a book for lonesome souls, of people who are struggling to build a life, a home.

Stavoci is remarkably confident. The writing zings. The novel begins with a gay hookup that was very well written, just a stunning use of a scene to create the inner life, very quickly, of an alienated gay man--who happens too to be a literal alien--from Yugoslavia to Finland. The smells in this...

A brilliant, beautiful novel.

I struggled with this book at the beginning and then grew to love it. I wasn't sure what to make of it, especially when Bekim seemed to be talking to cat who was talking back. It felt like this part was out of the blue completely and that maybe I was reading a Murakami story. That part ended quic...

Huh, mikä esikoisromaani. Tarina oli koskettava ja se vei mukanaan jo heti ensisivuilta lähtien. Yksi tähti lähtee siitä, että osa tapahtumista oli hieman liian outoja minulle tai sitten en vain ymmärtänyt niitä tarpeeksi.

Recommended by the estimable (unless you're the Cheeto in Chief) New York Times, this debut novel by Kosovo-born Finn Pajtim Statovci is just plain weird. Odd, and uneven, which might mean the same thing, but in fact counts as two criticisms. The plots, following Mom and son, stretch out over time...
