A Ballad for Georg Henig
The poignant story of an elderly, impoverished violin maker, a master craftsman who refuses to trim his values for the modern age, as seen through the eyes of his young protégé. A best-seller in Bulgaria, this is one of Paskow's major works.

What a story, and what a way to tell it. It flows like a mountain creek - now fast and turbulent, now smoothly going through a meadow. This is Viktor Paskov at his very best. The story is so powerful not only because it is true, but also as it comes from the heart.
Full disclosure: I went to school with Viktor; he was a friend to remember even without his writings.
