Critics about

Amor intellectualis, Ion Vianu’s latest novel, is an extraordinary autobiography, with fictional inserts, a Bildungsroman in which the main character is an allegory.”

(Simona SORA)

“A wise humanist addresses us from the pages of this troubling novel of growing up and life in an family of intellectuals, spinning the (self-)analytical yarn of an unravelling world.”


“You close this absolutely remarkable autobiography with the feeling that the only person who can talk convincingly about the values of the ‘beautiful young men’ of the 1950s is someone who was one of them.”
