“An emotional and award-winning novel. A dissection of the sweeping political changes in Romania in 1989 and a look at the art of surviving – then and now – from a female perspective. Recipient of the Sofia Nădejde Award, Sonia meldet sich is undoubtedly one of the best novels about communism, although it only appears here and there and very subtly under the surface of this story.” – Mihai Iovănel
