A new crunchy addition to a certain shelf in your bookcase: Kate Fox's Watching the English, Gustaaf Renier's The English: Are They Human?, and George Mikes's How to Be an Alien.
This time the title is Bulgarians Around London. The author, Nikola Filipov is a Bulgarian writer and journalist, living in London since 1998. He is an avid collector of short stories that capture the daily humor and inventions of the beleaguered Bulgarian immigrant mind. The satirical stories boldly expose the perspective not only of the Bulgarians in UK but that of their colleagues, friends, and housemates who oftentimes happen to be Poles, Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Romanians, and English themselves.
The book has undergone three editions in Bulgaria and comes today as a trusted guide for your daily alien encounters with the folks of Eastern Europe.
Look out! A Bulgarian just passed you by. -Eugeniy Kaydamov Chief editor of BG BEN, a Bulgarian community newspaper printed in UK
