Irina Papancheva will present her new novel She, the island on 3 May at Cultural Centre Morsko kazino in Burgas and on 4 May at Instituto Cervantes in Sofia.
I have now translated three of Irina’s works into French from English: the novels Pelican Feather and Almost Intimately, and her short story, No One. In these works, I found human beings fighting for their existence, often in very difficult conditions. They use short phrases, vibrant dialogues, an oral, everyday language, punctuated by poetic passages. They pose open questions with no hint of moralising.
