Time Shelter

Georgi Gospodinov     Recommended by    

Brock & Sharon are loving this Bulgarian novel which has amassed international prestige, and has been translated to English by Angela Rodel.

An enigmatic therapist, Gaustine, opens a clinic with a unique appeal: the clinic’s floors have become thresholds to the past—‘time shelters’—that allow Alzheimer’s patients to access forgotten memories.

Time Shelter goes on to explore themes of memory, history, and forgetting; the personal and societal. Satirical and warm, this novel holds a mirror up to contemporary ideas of nostalgia and the dangers that can come with it. I loved it from the first page. -Brock
