Petra Hulova became an overnight sensation when “All This Belongs to Me” was originally published in Czech in 2002, when the author was just twenty-three years old. She has since established herself as one of the most exciting young novelists in Europe today. “Writings from an Unbound Europe” is proud to publish the first translation of her work in English. “All This Belongs to Me” chronicles the lives of three generations of women in a Mongolian family. Told from the point of view of a mother, three sisters, and the daughter of one of the sisters, this story of secrets and betrayals takes us from the daily rhythms of nomadic life on the steppe to the harsh realities of urban alcoholism and prostitution in the capital, Ulaanbaatar. “All This Belongs to Me” is a sweeping family saga that showcases Hulova’s genius.
