By Albena Stambolova

Albena Stambolova’s idiosyncratic debut novel, every little thing occurs because it Does, builds from the concept that, because the identify indicates, every thing occurs precisely the method it needs to. therefore, the seven characters of the novel—from Boris, a tender boy who's simply at peace whilst he’s round bees, to Philip and Maria and their twins—each play a selected position within the lives of the others, binding all of them jointly right into a unusual, but logical, knot. As characters are picked up, explored, after which swept apart, the novel’s beguiling constitution turns into obvious, forcing the reader to be aware of the styles created by way of this accumulation of occasions and relationships. this isn't a unique of attaining ethical excessive floor; this isn't a e-book approximately resolving relationships; this can be a tale whose mysteries are mysteries for a reason.

Written with an exact, succinct tone that calls to brain Camus’s The Stranger, every little thing occurs because it Does is a charming and detail-driven novel that explores how intensity is not really as instantly available as superficiality, and the way every little thing will run its path within the detailed demeanour it used to be continually intended to.
