The Witch in the Jaws of Life is the story of Dubravka Ugrešić, an icon of the Yugoslav cultural and social scene who has lived in exile ever since the breakup of Yugoslavia. Because her writing challenged prevailing orthodoxies about nationalism, fascism, war and war profiteering during the Croatian War of Independence, she became the target of an unspeakable media hate campaign. Exposed to constant attacks and threats, she decided to leave Croatia. For over 20 years she has refused to engage with her cultural home or the Croatian media, convinced that nothing has changed since the time when she was denounced as ‘a witch to be burned at the stake’.
