In gripping true-confession style, the narrator speaks of love, of family history, of the fragile little things that make us what we are. A woman in the prime of her life, her world coming apart at the seams... Think you already know this story? Think again. It's a brand-new tale in the skilful hands of Vida Ognjenović, whose well-known talents for the theatre are on full display in this award-winning venture into fiction. Join her leading lady, Amalija, on a soul-searching quest for true identity. If there really is such a thing...

"With its eye-catching and ambiguous title, this book shows us that adultery is in fact the perfect metaphor for identity. When you come to think of it, identity is always a metaphor, never a fact. Identity is a construction imbued with our convictions and judgements...

The reader is drawn into a relationship with the narrator not unlike an adulterous affair, in which the truth is revealed bit by bit, layer after deceptive layer. We are promised a story about adultery, and what we get is a story about identity; there is no other way because the controversy of adultery is first and foremost the controversy of identity itself."

Istočno-zapadna sofra Olga Zirojević

Velika akribija, poznavanje nekoliko jezika na kojima je šarolika i veoma obimna literatura pisana, ali i živa radoznalost i istraživačka strast da se naoko nevažnom i marginalnom da pravo mesto i značaj koji zaslužuju – doneli su kao plod ovu knjigu. Tako autorka postavlja pred čitaoca sofru, zastrtu bez-platnom, i na nju iznosi redom razne delicije Istoka i Zapada i njihove nepoznate ili zaboravljene povesti...
