Baba Yaga Laid an Egg

Baba Yaga Laid an Egg


According to Slavic fantasy, Baba Yaga is a witch who lives in a home equipped on chook legs and kidnaps young children. In Baba Yaga Laid an Egg, across the world acclaimed author Dubravka Ugresic takes the undying legend and spins it right into a clean and fairly sleek story of femininity, getting older, id, and love.

With barbed knowledge and razor-sharp wit, Ugresic weaves jointly the tales of 4 girls in modern japanese Europe: a author who provides her loss of life mother’s ultimate want through touring to her fatherland in Bulgaria, an aged girl who wakes up each day hoping to die, a buxom blonde medical institution employee who’s given up on love, and a serial widow who harbors a mystery expertise for writing. during the women’s fears and wishes, and their struggles opposed to invisibility, Ugresic provides a brilliantly postmodern retelling of an historical fable that's infused with humanity and the enjoyment of storytelling.
