Kapka Kassabova is a young Bulgarian ÈmigrÈ poet who writes in English but with a European imagination.

"Kapka Kassabova has brought the turbulent memories of 20th Century European history with her to New ZealandÖ a truly international picture of what it means to be young and sensitive in the modern world."
Clive James

"Supreme clarity and fearless candor... a book of perpetual exile, of endless comings and goings... skeptical, riveting, passionate."
Mark Strand
