A Little Gem 1 Dec. 2011
By pierre cameron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Mitko is an unusual book: a novella about a strange but compelling relationship between an American man and hustler in Sofia, Bulgaria. The two disparate characters are both brought brilliantly to life, and their affair, though doomed and somewhat lurid, is complexly and compassionately rendered. The writing is accomplished and confident, and I look forward to reading many more books by this talented and intelligent author.

Political and poetic 2 Dec. 2011
By Petya K. Grady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I finished "Mitko" in one sitting and absolutely, WHOLEHEARTEDLY recommend it. It is a fantastic commentary on gender and (homo)sexuality in Bulgaria but also, more broadly, on the intricate and oftentimes inexplicable tensions between lust and pride, attachments and aversions, love and resentment, history and memory. Greenwell's style is eerily poetic. Beautiful, daunting!

beautiful prose book about solitude and desire 19 April 2012
By Katie Farris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Garth Greenwell is that rare thing--a true original, a writer whose debut is not just promising but is already an accomplished, masterly work of art. It is as simple as that -- in less than 100 pages, Greenwell is able to give us a gorgeous work about solitude desire, culture-clash, various dimensions of self, emotional and spiritual growth. It is a book where prose is not merely a means of communication but a high art; his sentences are orchestrated with much music and though, much gusto and contemplation. Many writers work for decades and publish six or seven books before they are able to produce the sort of sentences that seem to come easily to Greenwell. It is an astonishing debut.

stunning! 3 Dec. 2011
By David Herszenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a beautifully written, deeply moving short book. The characters whose relationship it chronicles are vivid, genuine, compelling, and drawn with great psychological insight. Mitko is an unforgettable read, and I'm eager to see what Garth Greenwell writes next.

Stunning and Immaculate. 25 Feb. 2012
By Mary Rakow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In a series of advances and reconsiderations, through a mere 86 pages, Greenwell delivers a text that is both philosophically ambitious and psychologically stunning. "I had to speak with a kind of bareness," the protagonist says of a conversation he had with Mitko, words that could stand in for the author as well, it seems. In this story of obsession, desire, falsehood, hunger and love, one feels the push of Greenwell's intellect asking the question, What is really possible between persons? And, more deeply, Is there, perhaps, some condition into which the self can finally be released?
Crystalline, daring, courageous and self-emptying, those familiar with Greenwell's poetry won't be surprised to find this inquiry rendered in lyrical, immaculate prose.
Mary Rakow, author of The Memory Room, a novel.
