Summary "A string of newly translated as well as already published stories by a real classic of East European literature. While the volume includes numerous examples of the oppression of women and the disaster that ensues if any should defy the established rules, thereby evoking the fabric of this society, Andric has also woven into it a more personal experience of the categories which society assigns to women."--BOOK JACKET.
