Everything Happens As It Does - Albena Stambolova
Albena Stambolova's idiosyncratic debut novel, Everything Happens as it Does, builds from the idea that everything happens exactly the way it must. In this case, the seven characters of the novel each play a specific role in the lives of the others, binding them all together in a strange, yet logical, knot. As characters are picked up, explored and then swept aside, the novel's beguiling structure becomes apparent, forcing the reader to pay attention to the patterns created by this accumulation of events and relationships.
Albena Stambolova (born 1957) is a Bulgarian psychologist, columnist and novelist.
