In Along the Tracks Nevena Mitropolitska intertwines three important narrative lines. The first one is historical and touches upon the cultural dialogue between ethnic Bulgarians and Jews in pre-WW2 Bulgaria, focusing on the myth around the so-called “saving of the Bulgarian Jews”. The second story line deals with immigrant experience in present-day Canada. The third is intimately connected to the second – and it examines the issue of teenage bullying, based on differences in ethnicity and cultural background. The novel speaks with the voices of three generations of women: a grandmother, her daughter and granddaughter. In 2022 Along the Tracks received the Peroto national award for contemporary Bulgarian fiction. The book was also nominated for the National Readers’ Helikon award.
