Emil Andreev: A Bulgarian Writer in Interesting Times

27/11/2010 by Christopher Buxton

On the 18th of November at the Bulgarian Embassy Emil Andreev gave an illuminating and positive talk in English on the Bulgarian Writer in Interesting Times. There was a reading from his latest novel, Crazy Luka by his English translator, Christopher Buxton. The event was organised by The British Bulgarian Friendship Society – and we are indebted to the Bulgarian Embassy and in particular the Cultural Attache Dessislava Naydenova for hosting the event. The mixed audience included writers, translators, academics, and young Bulgarians from Emil’s home town. The feedback was encouraging. Many expressed the hope that similar events be organised.
