"Manea demonstrates that he is an indispensable analyst of what it means to be a Romanian, and a Romanian Jew, and a writer, under fascism and communism... The Fifth Impossibility [is] an ample offering of his work, his memories, his wise and acute challenges."-David Mikics, New Republic -- David Mikics New Republic "Engaging, well-crafted, and at times striking ... timely and insightful essays on writing, politics, and exile."-Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly "Compelling subtlety and insight."-Reginald Gibbons, TriQuarterly -- Reginald Gibbons TriQuarterly
Norman 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.
