Critics about

“The novel could have turned into merely the story of the love between two lonely souls, who chance to meet on life’s path. But the author strives to achieve far more than a commonplace love story. The protagonists are misfits of the murky final years of communism, prisoners of a world they are unable to decipher, they cannot understand it, they live in an existential prison that dramatically marks the course of their lives. They are, as they too define themselves, ‘not yet born’.”
