Lana Mesić – When you point a finger, three are pointing back
|Publisher||The Eriskay Connection|
|Status||not yet published|
The complex history and contested borders that shaped the countries of former Yugoslavia set the stage for Croatian-born Lana Mesić as she weaves personal narratives in which she examines the role and meaning of the image of the enemy in her fragmented childhood. In light of recent European political developments, her book encourages us to reflect on our own experiences and consider how this history echoes to this day in the nationalist narratives that dominate the political landscape. Photographs, newspaper clippings, rumours, television clips, whispered conversations, written stories, and meticulously crafted relics made from matches and matchboxes form an intriguing web.
