Review: Nadirs

User Review  - Goodreads

A collection of strange, odd, and flat out bizarre short stories. Some were really well done while others were a bit too odd even for me. Overall, a great collection. Read full review

Review: Nadirs

User Review  - Goodreads

A dark collection of vignettes and short stories of a postwar childhood in Romania, fusing tales of poverty, sickness, isolation and sexual promiscuity with harsh social realism and black fantasy and nightmarish imagination. At times surreal, these tales are not for the faint-hearted! Read full review
