Biography

Bulgarian writer and translator Milen Ruskov, born in 1966, graduated from Sofia University in 1995. He is one of the laureates of the European Union Prize for Literature [8] in 2014 for his award-winning, best-selling and fully-staged novel Summit (Възвишение, Janet 45, 2011). Ruskov has written three novels: Pocket Encyclopaedia of Mysteries (2004), which was awarded the Bulgarian Prize for Debut, Thrown into Nature (2008), awarded the Bulgarian Novel of the Year Prize, and Summit (2011), which won Golden Century Award of Bulgarian Ministry of Culture, and Hristo G. Danov Award. In 2011, Thrown Into Nature has been published in the U.S. by Open Letter Books with the support of the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation. [9]

Working as a translator from English, he has translated more than twenty books, including some truly beautiful and important works, such as Confessions of an English Opium-Eater by Thomas De Quincey, Novel Notes and The Angel and the Author by Jerome K. Jerome, Money by Martin Amis, and Transformation by Mary Shelley, among others. In 2009 he won the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation’s Krastan Dyankov Translation Award [10] for his translations of Money by Martin Amis and De Niro’s Game by Rawi Hage.
