Set in Romania at the height of Ceausescu's reign of terror, The Land of Green Plums tells the story of a group of young students, each of whom has left the impoverished provinces in search of better prospects in the city. It is a profound illustration of a totalitarian state which comes to inhabit every aspect of life; to the extent that everyone, event the strongest, must either bend to the oppressors or resist them and perish.

This is a written so poetically, it is beautiful.

I found this hugely disappointing. It was written in such an unreadable style, I had to give up. I had hoped for more about the ethnic Germans in Romania, but there wasn't much, at least not in the beginning.... More
