Flaptekst van het boek met verhalen uit Bulgarije van Kalin Terziyski
A hymn to the city of Sofia, a series of whimsical character portraits, a literary mural of Bulgaria at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Is There Anybody There to Love You? is the first collection of stories from EU Prize-winning author Kalin Terziyski to be published in English. In these pages, you will meet the Collector of Valuable Things (packs of cigarettes, love letters, a magpie’s feather), a private eye at the end of his rope, and a young boy coming to terms, like the rest of us, with the mysteries of his existence. Most of all, you will be introduced to a gifted new writer, whose humanity and humor are reminiscent of Bruno Schulz and Bohumil Hrabal.
