Great literature opens our eyes to new worlds and invites us to share in the memories and dreams of people from all walks of life. To read the work of an author from an unfamiliar land can be to see the world from a new perspective and to experience a little of the lives of these people.
The joy of discovery and the valuable insight that can be gained from reading literature in translation is recognised by London’s Istros Books, an independent publishing house focused on bringing translated fiction from Central and South-Eastern Europe to the English-speaking world. Among its latest releases is the Bulgarian bestseller, 9 Rabbits, from Virginia Zaharieva.
In her homeland, author Virginia Zaharieva is a revered academic and cultural beacon, with a record of excelling in various forms of the arts.
