Summary/Abstract: The preface to the divergent texts devoted to the work of Ivailo Petrov, seeks to cover and inspire their unexpected unity – on the basis of the experience of each of the researchers to extract and highlight the “different” in the remarkable storyteller: atypical, unaccustomed even unrepresentative. Thus here plebs and truth have core categories around which gravitate the individual studies. Due consideration is given also to the other bright gift of the writer – the artist in him, which contributes to the presentation of creative personality in fullness. The articles end with an excerpt from the unpublished second part of the novel "Baronovi" (1997), i.e. with another escape-shelter of the author Ivailo Petrov behind the mask of an aristocratic and amoral "I" – character and narrator simultaneously. Composed parallely with the epic masterpiece of the writer "Wolf Raid", the novel "Baronovi" once again reinforces the idea of the hierarchy in this writing and and how Ivailo Petrov is divided between two mismatched prose profiles.
