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."

Ogledno o drugarstvu i posedovanju

Povodom objavljivanja knjige “Ogledi o drugarstvu i posedovanju” Irene Ristić u izdanju Geopoetike, u subotu 15. juna 2019. godine u 19 sati, u Krokodilovom centru za savremenu književnost (Karađorđeva 43), biće napravljena jedna posebna instalacija - od predmeta koji su nekada pozajmljeni od bliskih osoba, a koji nikada nisu vraćeni, jer su igrom slučaja ili namere ostali u tuđim rukama. Autorka je pozvala sve zainteresovane da se uključe u pravljenje ove postavke, kao i u dijalog koji započinju: Tijana Grumić, dramska spisateljica i dramaturškinja, Bojan Babic, pisac, i Jasna Novakov Sibinović, teoretičarka umetnosti i urednica Geopoetike. Biće reči o drugarstvu, svakako, ali i o tome kako smo i kada naučili šta je to privatni posed, šta je vlastito a šta tuđe, i koliko su te linije razgraničenja oblikovale odnose sa ljudima koji su nam važni. Koliko smo u ovom trenutku udaljeni od ideje deljivog ili zajedničkog? Umemo li još o tome da mislimo?

Autorka će potpisivati knjige, koje će se tokom ovog događaja prodavati s posebnim popustom.
