El mundo es grande y la salvación acecha por todas partes by Ilija Trojanow ES

Rating: 3     1 Vote
Country: Europe / Bulgaria flag Bulgaria
Description:
Ilija Trojanow, que es búlgaro pero escribe en alemán, es todavía para nuestros lectores un completo desconocido, aunque, sin duda, pronto los fascinará como lo hizo ya en Alemania y allí donde ha sido traducido. Pese a su juventud, su vida es casi tan prolija y azarosa como el título de su primera novela, El mundo es grande y la salvación acecha por todas partes, y su irrupción en la literatura alemana fue tan sorprendente como las historias que en ella aparecen. Pocos narradores contemporáneos en lengua alemana muestran semejante... continue

The voices speaking here - from a Roman housewife to a Chinese bar-owner in Berlin or an Argentine DJ - are the voices of the heart-sick, the culturally jet-lagged, people from photographs, the 'tenants' of lives, cities, and destinies.

Natural Novel by Georgi Gospodinov EN

0 Ratings
Country: Europe / Bulgaria flag Bulgaria
Description:
Resembling the complex and fragmented way a fly's eye works, Natural Novel contains a myriad of storylines, reflections, and digressions, including a history of toilets and the graffiti found there, a meditation on the relationship between bees and language, and an attempt to write a book using only verbs. Incredibly funny at times, this novel is driven by the narrator's need to come to terms with his dissolving marriage and his wife's infidelity with their close friend. Gospodinov's first novel is both broad in scope and intensely personal, illustrating the impossibility of presenting life tr... continue

The trail leads him to a village on the border with Turkey, a stone's throw away from Greece, high up in the Strandja Mountains--a place of pagan mysteries and black storks nesting in giant oaks; a place where every spring, possessed by Christian saints, men and women dance barefoot across live coals in search of rebirth. Here in the mountains, he gets drawn by his grandfather into a maze of half-truths"--Amazon.com.
