Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When time and place play tricks with your birth, what can you do apart from creating your own imaginary world, then run away from your own creation, to a new life?
A boy is born, some time in the recent past, in Milan, Italy, yet backwards when concerned with 'different' sexualities, and Fate wants this boy not only to be of an intellectually and socially dominant nature, but of a sexually and emotionally gay and submissive disposition.
Unable to explain himself to himself, unable to relate to the world, this soul creates his own world, through dreams, drugs, alcohol and lies, while from a distant place, a club in London, and maybe from his future, if he ever learns to fly, letters to his beloved My Dear look back at his life in Italy with parallels in a romance yet to be.
He tries to be 'normal' and have relationships with girls, he tries to be honest, and open himself up to his love and friend, but life has decided only pain, rejection and suffering should come of it, for the time being at least.
But little glimpses into another, maybe possible life, sparkle here and there through his life, his dreams and into his heart....
'...a brilliant short novel.' - San Francisco Book Review
'...an impressive work of art.' -Lit Art Magazine
'It definitely elevates the genre to a new level' - Markus Indie Book Reviews
'...something very special'; '...the poetic and color-fueled imagery in the style of writing that holds The Road To London above anything else that I have read this year'; 'The Road To London is a novel that truly should be read by as many people as possible - Bulla has through vibrant and poetic use of language created a modern day classic!' - Paul Martin, SPS
'The writing style is almost impossible to describe, as I do not think anything like has ever been written. Apart from the seamless mixing of different narratives already described, the novel uses poetry and music quite frequently, especially when the situation becomes emotional, important and tense...This novel has been an eye-opener for me: it looks at the world from a perspective that I had never considered, just in between the conscious and the subconscious, between the individual and the universal.'- The Book Review Circle
'Exceptionally innovative and creative, The Road to London is a daring novel, a book unlike any other before. It did not come to me as a surprise to read critics asking for it to be entered for the Man Booker Prize: we finally have a gay novel to represent us in the firmament of great literature: The Road to London.' - The Gay UK Magazine
'Yes, beautiful is the first word that comes to mind when reading The Road to London: impressively so, originally so and idiosyncratically so... all the qualities of a classic.' -Gay-Literature.com
'This novel is gay like the Bible is for Jews.' '...it simply cannot be forgotten.'  - Roger Hardy's Literary Blog
'...most readers of The Road to London had never picked up a gay or LGBT-themed book before.' 
This is not a gay novel, but a novel with a gay protagonist...
From the Back Cover
A light... 
A birth... 
A journey... 
An escape--not just from the whispering noise of expectations but from the growing awareness of a different life, a different path, a different quest. 
The greatest love letters are written in prose but bring forth the poet's heart, awakening in the receiver an equal passion--or so the writer hopes. 
This love letter tells the story of how I reach London, how I reach you, My Dear, how I come to love so deeply, so truly and completely. 
The journey was not easy, beloved. I faced many ugly trials on this narrow path--but also tests that were... Fun, naughty, spicy and the stuff of memories which will make me smile into my old age, whether you are with me or not. 
I have no regrets, My Dear, except one... Just one... 
It took me too long to find you...
