Recensioner i media

"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
