The Season of Delicate Hunger contains 32 contemporary Bulgarian poets and their poems. Some poems are sad, some funny, some long and some are short. With so many different voices there are a vast amount of unique poems. This was a very enjoyable read. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
