A splendid, violent spring suddenly grips Bucharest in the 1980s after a brutal winter. Tolea, an eccentric middle-aged intellectual who has been dismissed from his job as a high school teacher on "moral grounds," is investigating his father's death forty years after the fact, and is drawn into a web of suspicion and black humor."Reading 'The Black Envelope,' one might think of the poisonous 'black milk' of Celan's 'Death Fugue' or the claustrophobic air of mounting terror in Mr. Appelfeld's 'Badenheim 1939.' . . . Mr. Manea offers striking images and insights into the recent experience of Eastern Europe."—New York Times Book Review

Spellbinding

I have a penchant for vagueness. For me, it adds mystery and suspense, a sense of the incomplete, and it always leaves plenty of room for reader engagement through speculation. The Black Envelope has this in abundance. On top of that it opens a door, just a crack, into the changing dynamic of Eastern Europe which faschinates me.
