Alek Popov’s darkly satirical comic novel The Black Box has been reviewed by Richard Beard on the Contemporary Bulgarian Writers blog. Popov is surely one of Europe’s funniest and most exciting emerging writers whose most recently translated novel concerns the exploits of two Bulgarian brothers, Ned and Angel and a puzzling black plastic box containing the ashes of their late father . . .
Reviewing the book, Richard Beard talks of Popov’s ‘uniquely scabrous view of Bulgarians abroad.’ Read the review in full here: Richard Beard on ‘The Black Box’ by Alek Popov.
