Written in unsparing, haunting detail, Claudia Serea’s unforgettable
A Dirt Road Hangs From the Sky brings to life the horrors of the brutal communist repression in her native Romania in the second part of the 20th century the prisons, the torture, the barbarous inhumanity preserving in memory a time that should never be forgotten. She writes: “Tell me, grandma, everything you know / so I can be your mouth when you are gone.” The grief is lasting; memory must serve as justice.
Charles Rammelkamp, editor of The Potomac Review, author of Fusen Bakudan
