Prince Louis Richard de la Pau
Profession: translator, lexicographer, feature writer and art critic - now author
Resident in Bulgaria since 1994
My archaeological translations and analyses have been published all over the world including at the Academy of Sciences in Vienna.
My articles on the absurdities of the Bulgarian political and arts scenes have been published in various daily newspapers and monthly magazines in Bulgaria and even quoted in the western press.
As a feature writer, I tend to focus on gay issues, where possible, but largely to no avail in a country as conservative as Bulgaria, and that's the reason for my writing my first book - I regard as a way of coming to terms with my own family and its attitude towards me.
Interests: Classical music, French and Italian art (17th-18th century), haute cuisine
