Kapka Kassabova is a multi-genre writer of journeys. Her latest book of non-fiction Border (2017) won the British Academy Al-Rodhan Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, Saltire Book of the Year, Stanford-Dolman Travel Book of the Year, and the Highland Book Prize. Here, the author explores the once-deadly triple borderland of Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece where the easternmost section of the Iron Curtain ran. Europe and Asia meet in beautiful mountain villages that hold terrible secrets. Kapka meets people of humble means who have other kinds of wealth. This recently demilitarised borderland is also one of Europe’s last great wildernesses, endangered by deforestation and depopulation.
