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."

Nebulozni poslovi Dejvid Grejber

Oslanjajući se na argumente političkih mislilaca, filozofa i naučnika, Grejber objašnjava društvene i ekonomske posledice ovih poslova i predlaže kako da drugačije postavimo vrednosti, tako da više cenimo rad koji podrazumeva kreativnost i brigu o drugima.

"Smešno je, mada i poražavajuće, koliko pogrešno shvatamo rad i koliko vremena na njega trošimo."

Preminuo antropolog i aktivista Dejvid Grejber

Dejvid Grejber, čuveni američki antropolog i vodeća figura pokreta "Okupirajmo Vol strit", preminuo je u 59. godini. Radio je kao profesor antropologije u Londonskoj školi ekonomije. Bio je poznat kao oštar kritičar kapitalizma i birokratije, kao i po svojim anarhističkim stavovima. Tvorac je popularnog slogana "Mi smo 99 posto".

Geopoetika je do sada objavila njegovu knjigu Utopija pravila (2016), a uskoro se očekuje i Grejberovo kultno delo Nebulozni poslovi (Bullshit Jobs).
