RETAIL PROSE (Proza cu amanuntul)
Dan Lungu’s collection of short stories Retail Prose explores a world of “rupture” or “transition.” They are about people above all, appealing, ridiculous, naïve, conniving, wistful and pragmatic people. We will read, “The Bulldozerist,” a short, absurdist piece about a man who can’t bury his daughter because he can’t find stamps.
Dan Lungu was born in Botoşani, in the north-east of Romania, in 1969. He is a lecturer in Sociology at the "Al. I. Cuza" University in Jassy.
