Waiting

Stories
Dumitru Tsepeneag
Translated by Patrick Camiller

Though best known now for his novels, this collection of pre-exile short stories by the renowned Romanian author and “onirist” not only show Dumitru Tsepeneag at his best, but provide a glimpse into the secret history of surrealism uunder the brutal regime of Nicolae Ceauşescu. In these stories, life is both banal and bizarre, on the verge of breaking down, like a film loop played once too often, with the hot glare of irrationality always waiting to burn through. Looking forward to Vain Art of the Fugue and back to Breton, Waiting is a subversive delicacy.
