Paranoia is a personal life story. Memoirs in the form of short essays. The novel reveals my primitive complexes, inmost emotions and cracked dreams. It is a tale about an escape from the elemental impulses and social clichés through a journey. The emotional path meanders between the unbearable hypocrisy of the stony-hearted society, a self-destructive self-denial and an awe of the natural insanity. I like to think of my text as a hiking route – one must climb really hard and subdue every peak in order to face the roughness of the mountain thus feel its beauty and appreciate the cosiness of the hut.
I experienced Paranoia when I was 20 years old. Maybe the teenage style is rough and the novel is inspired by primary vanity and some clichéd depressions. But I believe that the real challenge is to write impartially and honestly. And I can assure you that Paranoia is truth. If nothing else it is still my revelation!
The Bulgarian publishing house LiterNet published the novel in 2007. Nevertheless I have decided to translate Paranoia in search for understanding and sympathy. Because I am curator at a Bulgarian museum I have 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 the novel is indigent of a professional introduction with faultless sample writing. Unfortunately these are services I cannot afford or provide.
