And Other Stories
Northwestern University Press, 27. 7. 2007 - Počet stran: 81
Wildly imaginative and endlessly entertaining, Georgi Gospodinov's short stories provide a hint of the narrative complexity of Borges and a whiff of the gritty realism of pre- and post-Communist life in Eastern Europe. These stories within stories and contemporary fables--whether a tongue-in-cheek crime story or the Christmas tale of apig, a language game leading to an unexpected ephiphany or to an inward-looking tale built on the complexity of a puzzle box--come together in unique and surprising ways, offering readers a kaleidoscopic experience from one of Bulgaria's most critically acclaimed authors.
