Description - Nobody's Home by Dubravka Ugresic
Every day and age has its rules. Currently, good behavior dictates political correctness, evade conflicts, espouse tolerance, and make no hasty judgments. To be judgmental is viewed as one of the most reprehensible human traits. This book breaks the rules of good behavior, because it bickers. This series of thought-provoking and incisive essays from Dubravka Ugresic explores the full spectrum of human existence. From life in exile to life in prison, from bottled-water drinking tourists to Eurovision, what was hidden in plain sight is here exposed.
