In his collection Light Over the Head Bulgarian writer Dimiter Dinev describes the East yearning after the West. His cruel and funny stories are peopled by football fans from Romania, cheats of genius and officers, gone mad with love. Hamburger Abenblatt Carnival of pain: Dimiter Dinev tells stories about the new Europeans of no homeland; they breathe from serene romantic pathos to profoundly black humour .... Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Dinev's prose is overflowing with life; in terms of language, it its powerful and witty, comforting and audacious.... Dinev combines the age-old and, for that matter, immeasurably fresh passion of story-telling with high spirits, joking and vitality; it is too much familiar with ruin, sadness and instantaneousness to be harmless as influence. And in this way the spirit of the narrator succeeds so alluringly to ring the bells and to make the light shine over the head. Professor Johan Hoerish Dinev's stories are not oppressive social reports; they are rather whirlwinds, mixing the Slavic soul and the German language wittiness. The characters rebelliously and passionately oppose the crushing circumstances. They have the laconic, bitter sense of humour of the underprivileged; that almost insane serenity of the doomed (....) It has rarely happened that the misfits have been described with such tenderness as Dimiter Dinev describes them. Deuschlandradio Dinev has succeeded to bring back the soul to German literature.
