Translated by Tsvetanka Elenkova

Translation of an anthology of 60 poems by Raymond Carver, published in Bulgarian as Kusmet by Small Stations Press, Sofia, 2008.

An anthology of sixty poems in Bulgarian translation. The American writer Raymond Carver had a difficult life but managed to find peace in the end. These sixty poems chart his journey from drunken beginnings to the realization that someone was waiting for him and happiness can be found in the simplest moments, for example watching the newspaper boy and his friend walk up the road in the early morning. The author comes out of himself to view himself from the outside and then to break in: “I bashed that beautiful window and stepped back in”. This is a book that is never without humour and modesty, the lessons of years. Published in Small Stations Poetry in Bulgarian
