“IR Verdict: Full of philosophical musings, gritty survival tales and unforgettable characters, Eliade Moldovan's THIS LIFE is a fascinating look at the little-understood world of postwar Romania.”
“Moldovan’s affecting stories are grim but not punishingly so, as he interlaces them with a welcome humor and a keen eye for the absurd. He also documents, with a sensitive intelligence, the irrepressibility of human pride; readers will find remarkable the lengths that farmers went to defend their land. Overall, this is a sad but never hopeless collection of true stories, conveyed with insight and empathy.
A gripping portrait of oppression in Romania.”
