Bread and Wine (Leb I Vino)
by Trefor R. Stockwell

The title of Bread and Wine (Leb I Vino) derives from the old Bulgarian custom of hospitality to strangers; it is considered a great discourtesy if visitors to Bulgarian homes are not offered food and drink, and an even greater discourtesy if this offer is then turned down.

“It was a lesson I quickly learned,” says Trefor, “and one that afforded me much pleasure, inspiration, and – I might add – several king-size hangovers!”

Fans of short stories and Magical Realist fiction will enjoy this collection of stories, which range from those inspired by the dark and bloody history of the 500-year-long Ottoman occupation, the folk-lore and onto those reflecting modern-day Bulgarian life; an eclectic mix from bawdy comedy to psychological bleakness.

Trefor is inspired by the work of Salman Rushdie and Angela Carter.

Kaye Trout's Book Reviews,, May 2011

I have read your book, Bread and Wine, which I found wide ranging, intimate, very informative, sensitive and a joy to read. I would recommend it to anyone. It is easy to read (you seem to be speaking to the reader personally)and all readers will find something to enjoy, something profound to think about, plus your special blend of wit and humour, sadness and depth.

Jean Jones: This book is beautifully written and put together. Jean particularly likes the story of the old man with the cart and thinks anyone could identify with him. The writing and characterization is so much improved since earlier years. All fits together and the end result achieves the ambition - the cultural influences - modern cultures. But she loves the man with cart best because he is so human he could fit into any culture and we would feel his feelings. A special and most enjoyable book.

I have enjoyed this book more than I can say, and it says everything I would like to say. I love traditional habits and how they came to be. Also, I love the tone of the Author and his humanity - I feel I know him. Let's have more books like this on the market. A real joy.
