    Božin Pavlovski is a Macedonian-Australian novelist whose works have been translated into more than twenty languages. He has lived in Australia for the past three decades and is in the prime of his creative life. He is a novelist–mediator between two cultures whose novels interpret the binary logic by which his characters are both “here” and in the country in which they were born or originate from. In his latest novel 'Gardener, Desert’ (2015), Pavlovski transmits through a Romanesque lens his vision of the transnational, cosmopolitan, multilingual and hybrid map of the world.
