Book Description

The pieces collected in Lend Me Your Character—the novella ""Steffie Cvek in the Jaws of Life"" and a collection of short stories entitled Life Is a Fairy Tale— solidify Dubravka Ugresics reputation as one of Eastern Europes most playful and inventive writers. From the story of Steffie Cvek, a harassed and vulnerable typist whose life is shaped entirely by clich ©s as she searches relentlessly for an elusive romantic love in a narrative punctuated by threadbare advice from womens magazines and constructed like a sewing pattern, to ""The Kharms Case,"" one of Ugresics funniest stories ever about the strained relationship between a persistent translator and an unresponsive publisher, the pieces in this collection are always smart and endlessly entertaining.
