Uršuľa Kovalyk's short story collection, The Night Circus and Other Stories, has been on a whirlwind tour of Britain this autumn, and collected reviews from far and wide.
Feminist, poignant, vividly imaginative, it was described by European Literature Network thus: "A strongly feminist perspective expresses itself in the way such longings materialise, often independently of a woman’s consciousness, in dreamlike experiences presented as real – full of vibrant colour and luscious sensuousness, where women are literally rejuvenated."
The London Magazine applauded the richness of Kovalyk's prose and themes: "Kovalyk is striking in the boldness of her imagination: we encounter cute and creepy dwarves, dream sequences, overripe trees, trippy paintings. There is much representational work at play that deserves applause, precisely for its artistic intention."
