Written in unsparing, haunting detail, Claudia Serea's unforgettable
A Dirt Road Hangs From the Sky brings to life the horrors of the brutal communist repression in her native Romania in the second part of the 20th century - the prisons, the torture, the barbarous inhumanity— preserving in memory a time that should never be forgotten. She writes: "Tell me, grandma, everything you know / so I can be your mouth when you are gone." The grief is lasting; memory must serve as justice.
—Charles Rammelkamp, editor of The Potomac Review, author of Fusen Bakudan
Beautiful, moving and brave; Claudia Serea's poems tell a story of fear and repression, but also one of hope. This strong collection speaks out against systems of repression all over the world, with a message that is vital and a powerful voice. — Victoria Hooper, Editor of Polluto
