Editorial Reviews


Exquisitely well-crafted, The Mosaic Of The Broken Soul is a highly rewarding literary jewel. Chronicling one brave soul's journey on the road to self-discovery, Branka Cubrilo's moving offering is equally heartrending and uplifting. Touching on delicate themes as motherhood, friendship, grief, and loss the novel takes the reader on a passion-filled roller coaster ride through the depths of the human soul - reassuring us all that even the darkest of tunnels still has light at the end.  
An insightful, brutally honest slice of unbridled humanity. Highly recommended. M. Drake

Written by authorities in Memoirs,
The Mosaic of the Broken Soul by Branka Cubrilo provides an excellent foundation for Memoirs studies. Branka Cubrilo's style is excellently suited towards Memoirs studies, and will teach students the material clearly without overcomplicating the subject. What's more, the text is available in the Paperback format shown above, as well as a number of other formats. As of May 2010, this revision raises the bar for The Mosaic of the Broken Soul's high standard of excellence, making sure that it stays one of the foremost Memoirs studies textbooks.

"Branka's writing is elegant and penetrative."
--Penelope Plunket

Branka is a writer of exceptional talent who traverses cultural, historical and linguistic barriers in her writing with a passionate fluidity. Her work has the great virtue of capturing the essence of place and nation with a seamlessness found only in the works of great writers who themselves have known displacement and separation. Her writing is beautifully evocative and captures the sense of place and atmosphere in a way which is transporting for the reader.
Prof. Penny Green

About the Author

Branka Cubrilo was born in Croatia. At the age of eighteen she wrote her first novel, I Knew Jane Eyre, and in 1982 it won the Young Writers Award. Soon after, she wrote a sequel to this story called Looking for Jane Eyre. In 1992, Cubrilo moved to Sydney and continued to write short stories and novels. In 1999 the novel As a River (Fiume Corre-Rijeka Tece) was published by Croatian publisher Adamic in her native town of Rijeka. The book received good critiques in Croatian and Italian press. After the Croatian book launch, an Australian one followed. In 2000, the next novel was published, Requiem for Barbara. The book was launched in both Croatia and Sydney. In 2001, a new novel, Little Lies, Big Lies, was published by the same publisher. This was the first volume of a trilogy called Spanish Stories. Cubrilo had obtained a scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to travel to Andalucia to research the cultural and historical settings of Cadiz. Cubrilo has written two more novels but she stopped writing and publishing when she encountered serious health issues and the disintegration of her marriage. When she recovered she was able to translate her experiences into a new novel, The Mosaic of the Broken Soul. Over the last 20 years, Cubrilo has worked as a journalist for various local newspapers in Sydney, writing articles and short stories and conducting interviews. One of her novels was serialized in the magazine Women 21. Cubrilo also worked as a radio producer in Eastside Radios Sydney and Special Broadcasting Services--SBS Sydney, where she has produced a number of programs and series, conducted many interviews and written short stories. Cubrilo now writes in English and is also translating her earlier novels into English. Many of Cubrilo's short stories and poems were published in literary magazines and periodicals (online and in print) worldwide.  She lives in Sydney with her daughter Althea. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
