The Bulgarian poet and literary critic Valentine Dishev defines Zdravka Evtimova's fiction is mythical realism and argues that it is based on the capacity of the writer to create contemporary myths. Through gritty realism and subtlety, Evtimova gets at truths about our present day that are rooted in the past yet project startling insights into the future. Parable of Stones is a short story collection that touches your spirit and mind, a book that takes you to a country where talent is synonymous with loneliness, love is multidimensional, and each dimension is a door to another world. Uproariously funny at places and profoundly sad a few pages further on, this work of fiction is a labyrinth that teaches the heart to endure and the mind to be victorious.
