Pressestimmen"Carmen Firan has the gift and the timing.... You can hear in Firan's prose the turning over of the wheel of time, the changing of once seemingly immutable orders, the anguish of people struggling to escape history and to understand themselves. Her writing lifts the curse, briefly." -- Andrei Codrescu
