Being a writer with a female name in Bulgaria means that, before tackling any gender issue in your book, you have a specific problem of your own—society is not quite pre- pared to consider you as an important and undeniable voice in literature, that is, as a writer. This happens no ma er how many male imitators a woman has. It hasn’t got much to do with the reading audience either—a well-selling female author does not flow as smoothly into the cliché of the national mentor as her male colleagues do.
