NOVEL TRANSCRIPT READING: The Floating Island Of The Sun, by Anca Mizumschi

Performed by Val Cole

“The newest book of Anca Mizumschi– “Țara mea suspendată” -” My Suspended Land’ -is a book about identity , exile and destiny. “Anca Mizumschi’s honest and moving confession about how she wrote her book” made Romanians tear and Americans regret that they cannot read the book. I read this book in one day, fascinated by Anca Mizumschi’s dense style, nostalgic, yet realistic reconstruction of our generation’s youth (born in 1960s), and for her nuanced evaluation of contemporary Romania. Her book can stand alongside great works by famous expats such as Gertrude Stein and Maya Angelou.” Ileana Marin, American Romanian Cultural Society
