A selection of poems by Georgi Gospodinov, one of Bulgaria’s most interesting poets and authors. “These poems are rooted in the fine attention to the everyday detail as well as in sceptical curiosity. They owe everything to thinking through what one sees looking close, are grounded in it. At the same time, they poems also strive for a higher authority. […] This poetic planet with its lyrical grandmother, divine tomato and overall uninhibited devotion to the natural, human course of things invites readers to enjoyable thinking.” (From the epilogue by Uwe Kolbe).
