“Georgi Gospodinov is unique in many ways. I’ve been reading him since the beginning and I know that no one can combine an intriguing concept, wonderful imagination, and perfect writing technique like he can.”
—Olga Tokarczuk, Nobel Prize–winning author of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

“Gospodinov is one of Europe's most fascinating and irreplaceable novelists, and this his most expansive, soulful and mind-bending book."
—Dave Eggers

“In equal measure playful and profound, Georgi Gospodinov's Time Shelter renders the philosophical mesmerizing, and the everyday extraordinary. I loved it.”
—Claire Messud

“In this book, time sneaks away and then returns, reconstituted. Franz Ferdinand is re-assassinated. The cigarettes you liked as a teenager are on sale again. Communism is back, and nice. The book is a satire, witty and scorching, but it is also wise and tender. Your grandmother is there.”
—Joan Acocella, The New Yorker staff writer

“Gospodinov writes like a botanist of the soul: he knows the effects of the pretty mushrooms and the hidden herbs within ourselves in spite of what they look like from afar. The living beings he studies are our versions of our past, the unretrievable, the recreated, the future versions of our past, and how we imbue them with the fantasies and poisons that we cultivate in silence.”
—Yuri Herrera, author of Signs Preceding the End of the World

Time Shelter is an extraordinary romp through time and memory, a beautifully written and wonderfully inventive meditation on what the past means to us, whether we can recapture it, and how it defines our present. This is the perfect novel for these cloistered, atemporal times.”
—Alberto Manguel, author of A History of Reading

“A powerful and brilliant novel: clear-sighted, foreboding, enigmatic . . . in which the future gives way like a rotten beam, and the past rushes in like a flood.”
—Sandro Veronesi, author of The Hummingbird
