The Wooden Tongue Speaks – now available in paperback!
This essential collection of short stories and poetry focuses on post-Ceauşescu and post-Cold War Romania, and delves into the pain, hope, paranoia, and uncertainties of this supposedly liberated world and its inhabitants. Candid, witty, and insightful, this is a compelling, unflinching look at modern Romania.
The Wooden Tongue Speaks has already earned widespread acclaim, with critics quick to praise its “wonderful prose”, proclaiming it a “brutally honest insight into the bleakness of [Romania’s] post-communist disillusion,” and describing its stories to be “almost too lovely, too painful, and too eternal in their pure timelessness.”
The Wooden Tongue Speaks is now available as both a paperback and an eBook, from the following locations:
