First Person Tales by Gergana Apostolova

This is a book of ten separate tales which contain smaller tales and are interconnected in the manner of Scheherazade's stories, but disclose the intimate relationship of humanity and nature. The tales are based on the first-person-singular involvement of the reader who is the potential teller after experiencing the events from the tales.

Some of the tales are definitely in the feminine, some are in the masculine, but most of them go deeper into the roots of our individuality where gender is only humanity.

The action is set in both the real and the absurd adventure of our minds: growing to know ourselves while cutting through our fears, memories, daydreams and role-play games, likes and dislikes, evaluations and senses. That is why the action of the tales is like a relaxed revisiting of a picturesque dreamy land; it is like dream weaving in a motion picture where the colors of a rolling scenery are combined with real smells, sounds and the unbound ability to move through space and time and understand the language of every natural object whether a rock or an alien or a tree.

The tales are told in an amorphous set of texts which is like the part of a single-person's mind life. This is the form of a proto-novel whose plot and subplots are not bound in a line of development but resemble a tree where each tale is like a golden apple, ready to fall into the hand of a willing reader after having sucked the juices of the mother-stem.

The texts are to be used in adaptations: retold in the first person singular by grown-ups to kids or vise versa; transformed into game settings, into film versions, into drawing books, or into simplified texts to be finished by learners.
