Authors > Alek Popov – A Bulgarian in New York
Alek Popov, author of satirical novels Mission London and The Black Box, appeared recently at the New Literature from Europe Festival in New York. We were proud to launch The Black Box, Alek’s second novel in English translation, earlier this year. This darkly funny book has had an enthusiastic reception, and you can read book blogger Chelsea McGill’s review here and an entertaining interview with the author here: Seven Questions for Alek Popov.
