Asymptote is thrilled to have published the text (Romanian and English translation) of this excerpt in our most recent issue, which you can read here. Here’s a snippet:
I never felt more at home in this world.
Hey, what’s got into you to make you say that? I think
I heard it, but in fact I misheard something
said in the night, in Hungarian…
or maybe it’s the walls’ music in the dark.
