Ženska drugje

Ženska drugje

Maja Gal Štromar

Novel, 2017, Literarna zbirka Goga

Ženska drugje (Woman Elsewhere) is a novel about three very different women: Marjuta, slightly overweight cook and unrealized lover of literature from Slovenia, Ute, a German beauty, who marries a funeral home director and a Latvian translator Gundega, who does not feel fulfilled by her work and so finds escape in dessert baking. Their stories are most obviously linked by cooking and food, which are interwoven into all three stories through rich metaphors that give the novel almost literal aroma. All three women journey (inwardly and outwardly) in order to solve their personal problems and still open wounds of recent history.

Nominated for kresnik award - best Slovenian novel of 2017.
