Abstract

A rare and critically acclaimed translation of short fiction from Bulgarian by D. Enev, one of Southern Europe's masters of the short story. Drawing on the monsters and myths of Balkan folklore, the brutal reality of the Communist regime, and the dazzling magic of Enev's own imagination, these stories have an almost hypnotic and surreal quality. Absurd, both painfully funny and deeply sad, "Circus Bulgaria", reaches straight into the cracked heart of the Eastern Europe.
