A plot replete with hidden treasures – Times Literary Supplement
All three stories in this powerful little book take us behind closed doors. […] Each tale here contains a surprise ending and a plot replete with hidden treasures. […] We are very fortunate [Vizyenos] left us his stories, and very fortunate, too, for these excellent translations.

Times Literary Supplement on Thracian Tales
Refined language and close observations mark Vizyenos’s dense prose. Charged with strong emotions and a love of nature, it is a triumph that the stories’ romanticism comes across fresh and true today. The demanding, complex tales are replete with character development, probing psychology and detailed descriptions.
— Publishers Weekly
Vizyenos brings into question the nature of identity and of reality as constructed by reason and senses.
