The chapter focuses on Street Without a Name, a genre-bending text by Bulgarian-born writer Kapka Kassabova, who has chosen English as her medium of expression. It looks at the conditions of the book’s engendering, especially, the role played by the publisher in the process of shaping it as an autobiographical travelogue. The narrative persona, which the writer fashions for herself in the text is analyzed within the context of present-day ideas of cosmopolitanism and is further linked to the emergence of a distinctive post-national migrant middle-class identity.
