Georgi Gospodinov presents his novel Time Shelter

In Georgi Gospodinov's novel, the narrator meets Gaustín, a flâneur who travels through time. He reads old news, wears vintage clothes, and explores the twisted paths of the 20th century. In Zurich, Gaustín opens a \"Clinic for the Past,\" a facility that offers inspirational treatment to Alzheimer's patients: Each floor is modeled after a particular decade. Patients can find solace there in their fading memories. But suddenly, more and more healthy people are interested in being admitted to the clinic, hoping to escape the horrors of the present ... A brilliant novel, infused with playfulness and dark wit, that opens up a new way of thinking about our past, present and future together.
