Kalina Stefanova’s Ann’s Dwarves and The Last Way Out were originally written in Bulgarian and published as two loose sequel-fictions in 2004 and 2010. During the last decade, thirteen distinct translations were done. This review attempts to give readers a brief introduction of the author and her two fictions as well as their reception and criticism. As her review writer, I firmly hold the opinion that Stefanova has been providing samples of cosmopolitan writing about human’s communication with the cosmos since ancient times, and human’s spiritual evolution – all this through the girl protagonist Ann’s eyes. This reveals the author’s unique vision and her inner life of tranquility and freedom.
