Abstract

yexemplar lives , ycontemporar lives the year in romania ioana luca a look into the astp e v Th ariety of life writing available on the Romanian book market remains as dazzling this year as it has been throughout the last three decades. Pub- lishing houses with a long tradition in life writing series have expanded their portfolios with new, exciting autobiographies, biographies, journals, diaries, correspondence, and book-length interviews. For instance, the documenting of the lives of dissidents abroad and interwar intellectuals has been enriched by the publication of the correspondence and diaries of their family members. Ecaterina Bălăcioiu-Lovinescu’s letters to her daughter, Scrisori către Monica 1951–1958, f urther the long-la sting attention publishers have given to Monica Lovinescu, the foremost intellectual and anti-communist voice in Paris. Mon- ica Lovinescu’s several volumes of journals and autobiographical essays, which have been available in bookstores since the 1990s, are now complemented by her mother’s daily letters and postcards from Bucharest. Written between 1947 and 1958, some of the most dic ffi ult communist years in Romania, this correspondence captures a mother’s love and desperate attempt to be in con- stant communication with her child, whom she feared she might never see
