A Concise and Practical Guide to Survival of Families with Small Children and Others in Sofia

"It's a book about Sofia and something else, written in the spirit of "Michelin" guides, catchy descriptions of Terry Pratchett, and charming chaos of home shopping lists. Here you will find laughter, pragmatism and various stories combined with the slight insanity that motherhood bears on its wings, with attempts to live, not only to survive in an urban environment, and with the effort to preserve the Beauty within the confused life of the grown-ups, which deserves admiration. The author has managed to grab the small moments that seem boring or are invisible for ordinary people, let them go through the sieve of her artistically squint worldview and serve them to us with the necessary skill, well cooked and properly seasoned."
Konstantin Rusev-Shaman
About the Author
Sonya  Todorova

Sonya Todorova (born 1979) studied Geodesy at the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy in Sofia and earned a doctoral degree in Advanced Geodesy at the Vienna University of Technology. Later on, in 2020, she graduated in Theatre-, Film-, and Media Studies at the Vienna University. Currently, Sonya works as a freelance translator, writer and contributing author for different Bulgarian media.

Her first book, "A Concise and Practical Guide to Survival for Families with Small Children and Others in Sofia" (Colibri, 2015), is a humorous, yet sharp social study of present-day life in her hometown and was nominated for the Outstanding Cultural Achievement Award of Sofia Municipality.

Sonya's debut novel, "Adi Landau's Pearls", was published in 2016. It was nominated for the 2016 "Helikon" Book Award for New Bulgarian Prose and shortlisted for the 2016 "Peroto" Award for Contribution to the Bulgarian Literary Context.

The stories in her latest book, "The Unknown Human Images" (2018), seem to lead through the reality of everyday life, while playing a sly game with the readers expectations. The short story collection was nominated for the 2018 "Helikon" Book Award for New Bulgarian Prose.
