In a frenetic hustle we live in, we often don’t have time to stop to think about ourselves, about the past, to contemplate and take time to relax. In diary entries gathered in the book The Carpenter’s Daughter, Marina Vujčić’s world unfolds before our eyes – intimate, full of thoughts, memories seeking time for herself and others.

As the author herself says: “This are my pressed flowers. I pick a fresh thought, I glue it onto a page, I date it and close the notebook. The next time I open it, the thought is no longer alive, but it is preserved, like a dried herb I used to make tea from before.”

The book consists of three units – Pressed Flowers, On Palagruža and Village – and it took almost a decade to make. The author’s life changed drastically; she remained the same and yet completely different. Through ideas about the books she is reading, the nature she enjoys, sunrises, young peas in her garden or isolation on a distant island, The Carpenter’s Daughter features fragments from a life which could also be hours. For, “only in thoughts little things can grow in scope and only in thoughts allegedly big things can diminish to the verge of nonexistence,” writes the author. We will believe her reality as we have so far believed her fiction.
