“Cârneci’s poetry is a carnival of sensory images, strong emotion and brilliant intellect. It is nevertheless moving, vibrantly accessible and necessary reading for anyone interested in contemporary writing in the whole southeastern European region today. Its conscious fusion of Western and Eastern European ideas and cultural influences is unique.”—Fiona Sampson
