A book about a family and a town, written in the manner of the best and greatest modernist novels.

Unterstadt is a story of an urban family of German origin living in Osijek from the end of the 19th till the end of the 20th century. It is narrated by portraying the destinies of four generations of women – a great-grandmother, a grandmother, a mother, and a daughter – their shattered illusions, their children's education, and the historical events that brutally lash out at them. Šojat creates a world rich in detail and nuance, all her characters, both major and minor, are expressive and suggestive, abundant in virtues and flaws, complex and multi-dimensional.

Through the history of one family, this novel speaks of the 20th century in a multiethnic town, of dictatorships, of wrongly selected sides, of fate which one can hardly defy. Unterstadt reveals the richness of Ivana Šojat’s narrative talent, and it is thus not surprising that she has emerged as one of the most interesting writers of contemporary Croatian prose.
