About this product
- DescriptionCreates a picture of everyday life in a grotesque police state, expressing terror and hope, fear and solidarity, the humorous triviality of the ordinary, and the painful search for an ideal.
- Author BiographyNorman Manea is Francis Flournoy Professor of European Culture and writer-in-residence at Bard College. Deported from his native Romania to a Ukrainian concentration camp during World War Two, he was again forced to leave Romania in 1986, no longer safe under an intolerant Communist dictatorship. Since arriving in the West he has received many important awards, including, in 2016, Romania's highest distinction, the the Presidential Order The Romanian Star in the highest level, of Great Officer. His work has been translated into more than twenty languages. He lives in New York City. An award-winning translator, Linda Coverdale has translated many classic works of modern French literature into English.
