• Homunculus

Homunculus is a collection of sixteen “fairy tales for adults”.

'Often surreal, sometimes inexplicable, Aleksandar Prokopiev is one of the “must-read”s.  He is a teasing, telling interlocutor who likes to play the naïve; the brilliant Fool who is a figure as recognizable from our traditions as from his own. These shape-shifting stories remain adamantly, radically open for us to interpret.  They challenge us to accept, even to embrace, our own confusion: implying, perhaps, that life itself is as confusing as any fable.  To read them is to glimpse the wildness at the heart of Europe.' Fiona Sampson, Poet.
