(Pana de Gravitatiei, fiction)

An ambitious journalist who takes it upon himself to uncover the cynical abuse of political power finds himself making compromise after compromise once he is drawn into the circle of political privilege. Having witnessed a killing and trying to discover the criminal, he slowly but surely becomes a cynical criminal himself, knowing that his crime will go unpunished. Written in Romania in 1976, but published only in 2001, the book remains as pointed today as it did 30 years ago.
Bucharest: Albatross, 2001. 286 pp.

English translation available in 2004.
