Reviews

Gospodinov's debut prose work Natural Novel was hailed as a "go-for-broke postmodern construction--a devilish jam of jump-cut narration, pop culture riffs, wholesale quotation, and Chinese-box authorship" (Village Voice) Gospodinov s debut prose work Natural Novel was hailed as a "go-for-broke postmodern construction--a devilish jam of jump-cut narration, pop culture riffs, wholesale quotation, and Chinese-box authorship" (Village Voice)" Whether a tongue-in-cheek crime/horror story or the Christmas story of a pig, a language game leading to an unexpected epiphany or an inward-looking tale built on the complexity of a puzzle box, the work in this collection offers a kaleidoscopic experience of a writer whose style has been described as "anarchic, experimental" (New Yorker) and "compulsively readable." (New York Times).
