"Buzarovska belongs to the highest ranks of contemporary women writers - here I think it's completely justified to appraise her in the global context and to place her side by side with the most renowned, say, English-speaking authors like Alice Munro, although this young Macedonian author, of course, has a lot of writing to do before being compared to a body of work of this extent, but the thing is you can clearly see how she could do it, that type of material is here - brought to light by the dark, carefully shaded places of foremostly human, not exclusively female existence, in such a way that the reader is at the same time necessarily frightened and thrilled by what's in front of them: first because of what they recognize in themselves and those close to them, and secondly because... let's say because it has never been brought to light in that way."--Teofil Pančic, Globus
