The Horn of Love

Bozin Pavlovski      

Translated from the original Macedonian by Vesna N. Krstevski

2017 Longlist

“Pavlovski is our Steinbeck from the Balkans. Disturbed about the fate of the small individual, he presents us with an exceptional novel. The reader from the west develops a feeling of sorrow, the truth is so terrifying that it makes the fiction even more powerful. Thanks to Pavlovski, the emigrant workers enter our literature and our conscience. A beautiful stone is thrown to shake our indifference and disturb our conscience. Here the artistic truth is so strong that it fascinates. This is a novel with a polyphonic meaning” – Gilles Costaz, Le Matin, Paris
