Reviews

Doppelgänger, a boldly virtuosic novel in two parts, mirroring the realities of Croatia and Serbia, sees Drndic delighting in Beckettian high art. More than any of Drndic's wonderful collage, archival, semi-autobiographical narratives thus far translated, it is the brief, if immense, Doppelgänger that may surprise even her established readers.-- "Financial Times"
Fragmented but not disjointed, Beckettian as well as Bernhardian, Doppelgänger is complex, dark and funny: a strange gem.--Claire Messud "Guardian"
Her incisive skill and radical style render potentially grim reading compulsive. She was a voice of-and for-our times.-- "Times Literary Supplement"
A work of continental gloom that promises that no one gets out of here alive.-- "Kirkus" (7/1/2019 12:00:00 AM)
