Georgi Gospodinov

Georgi Gospodinov (1968) is a leading Bulgarian writer, whose books are translated into more than 25 languages. Mixing poetry with fiction, his style is both poetic and philosophical, highly readable, funny and self-ironic. He became popular with the award-winning novel “The Physics of Sorrow” (“Физика на тъгата”). His recent novel, “Time Shelter” (“Времеубежище”), is the winner of the 2021 European Strega Prize.
