Мојот маж

Rumena Bužarovska

Publisher: Blesok

North Macedonia

Adulterers, cheats, hypocrites, bad seeds―in My Husband, Rumena Bužarovska turns her wry and razor-sharp gaze on men, and on the lives of the women who suffer them. In these eleven devastatingly precise and psychologically unsettling stories, we follow the female protagonists’ thwarted attempts at intimacy, ranging from pretense, to denial, to violent and ultimately self-destructive acts. In the end, we get to know about the psychological make-up of the women – their dashed hopes and dreams – even though, on the face of it, they only expose their husbands and husbands’s shortcomings.
