Adulterers, cheats, hypocrites, bad seeds--in My Husband, Rumena Buzarovska turns her wry and razor-sharp gaze on men. Rather, on 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. This smart, funny, provocative collection demonstrates the profound skills that have made Rumena Buzarovska one of the finest contemporary writers of short fiction in Macedonia.

Review quote

Buzarovska belongs to the highest ranks of contemporary women writers - here I think it's completely justified to appraise her in the global context and to place her side by side with the most renowned, say, English-speaking authors like Alice Munro, although this young Macedonian author, of course, has a lot of writing to do before being compared to a body of work of this extent, but the thing is you can clearly see how she could do it, that type of material is here - brought to light by the dark, carefully shaded places of foremostly human, not exclusively female existence, in such a way that the reader is at the same time necessarily frightened and thrilled by what's in front of them: first because of what they recognize in themselves and those close to them, and secondly because... let's say because it has never been brought to light in that way.-- "Teofil Pančic, Globus"
