All roads lead to the sea by Kapka Kassabova( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 160 libraries worldwide
All Roads Lead to the Sea is a first collection of poetry from a young Bulgarian immigrant poet. Her work had already attracted considerable attention, with a special issue of Poetry New Zealand featuring her poems. Her moody, evocative poems brilliantly convey the rootlessness and restlessness of the immigrant, the mingled sense of loss and wonder in the new land, the nostalgia and the longing, the hopes and the memories. The three parts of the book mirror a passage from dislocation to exploration to looking forward, with the last part dominated by the image of the sea
Someone else's life by Kapka Kassabova( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 151 libraries worldwide
Kapka Kassabova quickly attracted attention with her first collection All Roads Lead to the Sea (AUP, 1997), which won the NZSA Award for the Best First Book of Poetry, and her subsequent book, Dismemberment (AUP, 1998). With both these books out of print, Someone Else's Life includes 26 poems from the first two and a substantial number of new poems, responding to new places and incidents, only confirm Kassabova's gifts. Drawing on a European tradition in several languages, and on a global life experience characteristic of the times, Kassabova's lyric voice carries memories of loss, isol

Geography for the lost by Kapka Kassabova( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 124 libraries worldwide
In Geography for the Lost, travelling poems speak from different parts of the world and different moments in time, but always of the many ways to be lost and disoriented: in a place, in the past, in fear, in the very quickness of life. The voices here? from a Roman housewife to a Chinese bar-owner in Berlin or an Argentine DJ? are of the heartsick, the culturally jet-lagged, people from photographs, the?tenants' of lives, cities and destinies. This is what we all are, have been, or will be. Colourful, haunting, funny, bitter-sweet, the poems in Geography for the Lost mirror the restle

Kassabova was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and grew up under the drab, muddy, grey mantle of one of communism's most mindlessly authoritarian regimes. Escaping with her family as soon as possible after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, she lived in Britain, New Zealand, and Argentina, and several other places. But when Bulgaria was formally inducted to the European Union she decided it was time to return to the home she had spent most of her life trying to escape.
