Read "Burying the Typewriter, 1 Oct. 2013
This deeply moving book gives a graphic insight into how life was under the Ceacescu regime in Romania. In particular what having a "Dissident" father meant for his family living on their family farm. The tensions and hardships they endured for him bring into sharp relief the cost of his principles for his children and wife. Nevertheless, Carmen's life had much happiness and the closeness and warmth of her relationships with her mother, her siblings and her extended family are enviable.
A wonderful read.
