Last night, Sasha and I had the privilege of attending the premier of Sofia Papazova’s newest book Seven Olive Blossoms. Sofia is the mother of one of Veronica’s classmates. Their family has become friends with our family over the past two years.
Sasha read her first book and was impressed by her amazing use of descriptive language. Last night at the premier, several excerpts from here newest book were read. The one that impressed me the most was a section that described the making of a salad. You would not think salad construction would make for good reading, but the way it was described was fascinating. The book critic who spoke last night was very impressed with Sofia’s ability to describe in detail places in Italy that she has never been. She certainly did her research, which, in my opinion, separates the good writers from the great ones.
At just 35 with two books already written, Mrs. Papazova has a promising career as a novelist ahead of her. We appreciate being invited to her big night.
