Tales of Ivan Levsky
by Trefor Stockwell

This collection of short stories originally formed the core of the Author's doctoral thesis, and were written by him over a two year period whilst based in a small Bulgarian village. The collection will give the reader an insight into the history, culture and traditions of this fascinating Balkan country.

Written originally with performance in mind - the author wanted the stories to reflect that country's oral storytelling tradition - they make for a lively and fascinating read.

Fans of the short story genre and of Magical Realist fiction will enjoy this collection of stories as told by the fictional storyteller, Ivan Levsky, which range from those inspired by the dark and bloody history of the 500 year-long Ottoman occupation, through folk-lore and onto those reflecting modern-day Bulgarian life: an eclectic mix ranging from the bawdy comedy of Samovila to the psychological bleakness of 'The Experiment'.

Within this anthology the reader will find a tale to suit every mood. A truly funny, thought-provoking and genuinely different collection of East European tales.
