God's Patience

Azra Irovnik

As Laura admits adultery to her husband, a merciless war erupts in their matrimony. The husband fails to function as a rational human any longer, as the knowledge of another man destroys his identity, awakening the murderer within him. The demon of jealousy causes obsessive rivalry between the husband and the lover, causing Laura to rediscover truth and values. In the house next door, a Bosnian Muslim experiences same drama globally, as a cruel war, ethnic cleansing, massacre, and systematic mass rape is happening in her homeland, to her very own people. The two women merge into one and undergo transformation of their spiritual and physical identity through tragedy in which male ego destroys and creates the world. Devaluation of values and hypocrisy of civilization cause the women to rebel and search for ultimate truth and justice. This combination of diary prose containing features of an urban love story is wrapped up in a deep, intimate rhythm of the self-enticed prayers of a modern woman, who is in search of ultimate strength and higher meaning of existence with both flowers and thorns she has to find meaning in
