Serbian edition of the novel Dual citizenship in the Archipelago is the first edition of this novel by Nina Jaragkova outside the French language.
For this novel, published at the end of last year in France, Nina Jargekov received the “Flor” Award.
Dual citizenship is a novel about a woman who suffers from amnesia and has been rushed to the airport, with two passports, two cultures, two languages. “You’re flying at the airport. You do not know who you are or where you are going. You have two passports in your bag. You’re wearing a great crown, and you feel like a stolen car. How to make life from this amnesia? Repeat it? Even though this was actually two lives? “So the heroine’s novel is asked at one exceptional moment in her life that she shares with many emigrants, emigrants and young people in Europe whose identity and citizenship is crossed.
As the title itself suggests, this is the key theme of the new novel by Nina Jargekov: how to deal with two cultures, with two languages, with two sensibilities, how, in fact, to lead a double life? Or, on the other hand, how to support the country we live in, when it seems to be preparing to adopt the Law on the Prohibition of Dual Citizenship?
