Read full description of the books Lesen Verboten:

Die weitreichenden Veränderungen im Gefolge der Herausbildung eines globalen Marktes für Literatur bis in ihre sprechenden Details schildert Dubravka Ugrešić in ihren neuen Essays. Ihr Befund lautet: Galten als zur Weltliteratur zugehörig bisher Bücher, die qualitativen Maßstäben genügten, so wird der Begriff gegenwärtig quantitativ verstanden: Zur Weltliteratur zählt nur noch, was sich weltweit verkaufen lässt. Das hat zur Konsequenz: Autoren und Leser sprachlicher Kunstwerke werden an den Rand gedrängt, wie den Rauchern sind ihnen die unvorteilhaftesten Reservate vorbehalten.
Die Zunahme von imaginären und realen Lesen-Verboten-Hinweisen - amerikanische Verlage zahlen für die Erinnerungen eines US-Präsidenten, die seiner Gemahlin sowie seiner Praktikantin Millionen Dollar an Vorauszahlungen, ohne eine Zeile der Manuskripte zu kennen, Romane von Sitcom-Stars werden werden von Agenten aufgrund zweiseitiger Angaben über den Plot meistbietend verkauft, Lektoren in den angelsächsichen Ländern machen die Lektüre eines Manuskripts von einem »book proposal« abhängig - bildet für die Autorin jedoch keineswegs den Anlass für ein kulturpessimistisches Lamento.
Sie kennt nämlich das Heilmittel gegen die Vorherrschaft der Marktgesetze innerhalb der Literatur - und ihre Essays sind ein Beleg für deren Wirksamkeit: eine kosmopolitische, transnationale Literatur, die souverän aus allen Kulturen schöpft, dabei luzide ist und folglich ironisch sein muss.

Read information about the author

Ebook Lesen Verboten read Online! Dubravka Ugrešić earned her degrees in Comparative Literature, Russian Language and Literature at the University of Zagreb, and worked for twenty years at the Institute for Theory of Literature at Zagreb University, successfully pursuing parallel careers as a writer and a literary scholar.

She started writing professionally with screenplays for children’s television programs, as an undergraduate. In 1971 she published her first book for children Mali plamen, which was awarded a prestigious Croatian literary prize for children’s literature. Ugresic published two more books (Filip i Srecica, 1976; Kucni duhovi, 1988), and then gave up writing for children.

As a literary scholar Dubravka Ugrešić was particularly interested in Russian avant-garde culture. She was a co-editor of the international scholarly project Pojmovnik ruske avangarde, (A Glossary of the Russian Avangarde) for many years. She rediscovered forgotten Russian writers such as Konstantin Vaginov and Leonid Dobychin, and published a book on Russian contemporary fiction (Nova ruska proza, 1980). She translated fiction into Croatian from Russian (Boris Pilnyak, Gola godina; Daniil Kharms, Nule i nistice), and edited anthologies of both Russian contemporary (Pljuska u ruci, 1989) and avant-garde writing.

Dubravka Ugrešić was best known in the former Yugoslavia for her fiction, novels and short stories: Poza za prozu, 1978; Stefica Cvek u raljama zivota, 1981; Zivot je bajka, 1983; Forsiranje romana reke, 1988. Her novel Forsiranje romana reke was given the coveted NIN-award for the best novel of the year: Ugrešić was the first woman to receive this honor. Croatian film director Rajko Grlic made a film U raljama zivota (1984) based on Ugrešić’s short novel Stefica Cvek u raljama zivota. Ugrešić co-authored the screenplay, as she did with screenplays for two other movies and a TV drama.

In 1991, when the war broke out in the former Yugoslavia, Ugrešić took a firm anti-nationalistic stand and consequently an anti-war stand. She started to write critically about nationalism (both Croatian and Serbian), the stupidity and criminality of war, and soon became a target of the nationalistically charged media, officials, politicians, fellow writers and anonymous citizens. She was proclaimed a “traitor”, a “public enemy” and a “witch”, ostracized and exposed to harsh and persistent media harassment. She left Croatia in 1993.

Dubravka Ugrešić has continued writing since she began living abroad. She has published both novels (Muzej bezuvjetne predaje, Ministarstvo boli) and books of essays (Americki fikcionar, Kultura lazi, Zabranjeno citanje, Nikog nema doma). Ugrešić’s essays have appeared in American (“Context”, “The Hedgehog Review”) and European newspapers and magazines (such as “Vrij Nederland”, “NRC Handelsblad”, “Die Zeit”, “Neue Zurcher Zeitung”, “Die Welt Woche”, and many others). She teaches occasionally at American and European universities. Her books have been translated into more then twenty languages. Dubravka Ugrešić has received several major European literary awards. In 2016, Ugrešić won the Neustadt International Prize for Literature.

She is based in Amsterdam today, working as a freelance writer.
