“Paranoia” is a personal life story constructed of memoirs in the form of short essays. The text reveals my primitive complexes, inmost emotions and cracked dreams. It is a tale about an escape from the elemental impulses and social cliches through a journey. A path that rambles between the unbearable hypocrisy of the sentiment-free society, an self-destructive self-denial and an awe of the natural insanity. The work follows an emotional path, it is like an arrangement of a puzzle. Every single chapter has a suggestion that is part of the entire manuscript`s idea. I like to think of my text as a hiking route – you must climb really hard and subdue every peak in order to confront with the roughness of the mountain thus feel its beauty and appreciate the cosiness of the hut.
The novel was written and experienced when I was 20 years old. My teenage style was rough. I think that my pencraft is quite different now. I am afraid that you might find the text naive or heavy, inspired by the primary vanity and some cliched depressions... In spite of all I believe that the real challenge is to extract the true revelation through complete honesty. And I can assure you that “Paranoia” is truth. Or at least my truth.
The Bulgarian publishing house "Liternet" e-published my prose in 2007. Nevertheless I have decided to translate “Paranoia” in search for understanding. Here comes another problem – my English is terrible. See - Bulgaria is the poorest member of EU – the usual monthly salary is around 200 US dollars. Mine is even lower. That is why I have translated “Paranoia” on my own – I have the time to attend to this project but don`t have the money to invest in it. I know that my English usage need quite an editing for the market and “Paranoia” is indigent of a professional introduction with faultless sample writing. But these are services I can not afford or provide. I just want to understand if I have a chance with my ideas, writing and emotions. You know – if I have a chance to provoke a miracle. It is a sickly tenacity and I bet that you know so many wannabe writers like me...
