Product description

Review

"[Tsepeneag] induces the sense that memory, time, and consciousness are both mutable and, ultimately, unknowable." -- Elizabeth Hand

"[Vain Art of the Fugue] is a work of singular invention and joy, a successful experiment in every aspect of the novel, especially delight."

"Reading Romanian writer Dumitru Tsepeneag's Vain Art of the Fugue is like having a dream, and then remembering it in that diaphanous, vague, next-morning way a dream is recollected. This is a good thing."

"With his metaphors and traps, Dumitru Tsepeneag reminds me of a magician who pulls flowers, animals, and strange objects out of his hat. He lays comical stories over a poignant, and often grim, background."

accomplished and delirious comic novel' - James Womack, Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Dumitru Tsepeneag (born 14 February 1937) was a leading member and theorist of the Romanian 'oneiricist' group in the late 1960s and early 70s, before the communist regime suppressed the literary movement. The regime viewed Tsepeneag as a troublemaker and in 1975 Ceausescu himself personally signed the decree stripping him of his Romanian citizenship, thus forcing him into exile. He settled in Paris, continuing to write literary work in Romanian, and later in French, as well as publishing extensively in the press. Since 1990, he has commuted between Paris and Bucharest.
