    Americans don t read anywhere near enough writing written outside the borders of the United States There is a hell of a lot going on out there, perspectives and innovations, but many Americans aren t even aware of it When we do step outside, it s almost always to the same old writers who ve influenced generations of Americans before Nothing new This book is a great place to start changing that How many Americans have even read a Bulgarian novel before Much less, a good one The Publishers Americans don t read anywhere near enough writing written outside the borders of the United States There is a hell of a lot going on out there, perspectives and innovations, but many Americans aren t even aware of it When we do step outside, it s almost always to the same old writers who ve influenced generations of Americans before Nothing new This book is a great place to start changing that How many Americans have even read a Bulgarian novel before Much less, a good one The Publishers Weekly quote on the back talks about mixing genres, but I minterested in the way that Zaharieva changes prose style with the changing emotional state of the narrator The periodic inclusion of recipes is interesting as well Just have a look There is a lot of important work going on out there that you probably don t know anywhere near enough about

    DNF pg 81This had a very interesting premise and was hooking at first but had much flowery language to make sense Also, there were recipes spread throughout that didn t add much to the story In short, I got bored
