“I love the old stone walls and barns and houses and medieval fortresses and crumbled ancient palaces and temples. The donkeys and the little horses that pull weathered old wagons full of hay or grain. And sweet luscious melons, pears and plums, apricots and apples, and the thick juicy clusters of grapes, everywhere just waiting to be plucked from the vine. And the delicious daily bread, the cheese, yogurt and baked tomato, pepper, rice and bean dishes … the simple shared pleasures of the earth’s bounty.
“It falls to me and my kinfolk to enjoy those things, and particularly the literature of Macedonia, which I am compelled to translate and interpret and promote a calling inspired by the land of my grandfather.”
