Product Details


“[A] complex and compelling epic… [Ivailo Petrov] shows with exceptional skill the stark impact that communism had on the villagers of Bulgaria, and this new translation does his work justice.” — Publishers Weekly

“An explosive mixture of patriarchy and communism, suppressed secrets and broken destinies in a remote Bulgarian village. Hidden traumas send six men on a final hunt – in which they themselves might turn out to be the game. A novel that grabs you by the throat and brings out the wolves in all of us.” — Georgi Gospodinov

​”A novel about memory – about witnessing and exposing the past…. All of contemporary Bulgarian prose comes out of this novel, whether it admits it or not.” — Georgi Grozdev

Wolf Hunt is a multi-layered saga and a rich encyclopedia of mid-20th-century Bulgarian life… A novel where the Earth is still solid and the world still rings, smells, touches, reaches and catches the senses and the sense of the readers. A novel in which dangerous liaisons of discourses and illegitimate marriages of styles perform the tragicomic spectacle of belated Bulgarian modernization.” — Dimitar Kambourov, Trinity College Dublin and Sofia University
