Kapka Kassabova is a young Bulgarian emigre poet who writes in English but with a European imagination. Her well traveled poems speak from different parts of the world and different moments of history, but they always speak of the many ways to be lost and disoriented: in a place, in the past, in fear, in love, in the very quickness of life. The voices speaking here-from a Roman housewife to a Chinese bar-owner in Berlin or an Argentine DJ-are the voices of the heart-sick, the culturally jet-lagged, people from photographs, the ""tenants"" of lives, cities and destinies. This is what we all are, have been, or will be.
