In search of short novels and volumes of poems with populare charm. After living in Poland and Hungary, I have a keen interest in Eastern Europe literature that feels in voice/perspective (or exploring topics after the Soviet and Cold War), and I find everything that concerns myself with exiles and expatriations arrested immediately.
No matter what the demographic, I have a tendency to like contrasting neighborly and low-brow contents, nice sets and nasty motifs - nice and frightening, heart-rending and comical. Forward and backward writing of mysteries, intrigues, vengeance, conspiracies and tales to make meaning (I CHOOSE to discover a very skillfully planting hint that makes perfect sense in hindsight).
In general I concentrate on literary literature for adults, nonfiction, mid-range and young adults. I' ve been an operative for 26 years and I really like finding new people. It is my pleasure to get lost in one story and to be taken to another world, be it in the past, in the present or in the poster.
I' m an absolute Francophilian and have been spending a lot of my spare minute in Paris and the South of France, and yes, I've been selling a lot of foreign literature because I'm always working!

I like tales that oppose gender convention and interfere with readers' expectation, and I particularly like dystopic diction, eco-fiction and absurd tales and everything that has to do with a scientist's ancestor. If you' re looking for a book that explores great things through exciting tales. Well, I like a sense of humour, open or smart.
