Zdravka Evtimova

The two short stories by Zdravka Evtimova: “She Understood” and “The Miracle Maker” (published in the anthology of short stories “Drastic Measures (Short Story Collection)” in the UK in January 2012) inspired the following critical notes on the works of the Bulgarian writer:

Again, the idea is a study of where the human mind goes when it’s cornered. But this volume acquired a decidedly literary gloss as well. That’s thanks in part to our discovery of European literature master Zdravka Evtimova, aka Zee, whose versatility is such that she can instantly delight you, or make you feel the swinging pendulum blade from word one.

The Bulgarian born award winner contributed two stunners to the collection. “She Understood” reminds me of Anton Checkov on a particularly dark day, featuring whiplike mental torture and poetic justice, while “The Miracle Maker,” is the amusing story of a mistreated misfit girl that will risk anything to have her way.
