A village in the Carpathian Mountains, one of the last outposts of pre-modernity in Central Europe, an elderly man, sensing his time is short, tells his young grandchildren tales that weave their family history with the real history of a century. OneMoreA village in the Carpathian Mountains, one of the last outposts of pre-modernity in Central Europe, an elderly man, sensing his time is short, tells his young grandchildren tales that weave their family history with the real history of a century.

One of the children, now grown, is the re-teller of these tales, while his sister, Miruna, seems to possess the gift of second sight. Incorporating elements of fantasy common to the storytelling traditions of the Balkans, historical figures mix with imaginary beings in a landscape to recreate the world of an isolated hamlet that had managed to keep the modern world at bay over a succession of political regimes, but whose idiosyncratic ways might now be irretrievably lost without its story being told.Blending the autobiographical and historical with the marvelous, Miruna, a Tale is a novel whose core is the exploration of the imaginary themes and motives that informed traditional society in the mountainous regions of Romania, a world that was radically transformed into virtual extinction over the course of the 20th century.Described by critics as a “literary jewel whose strange and singular spell holds the reader in its thrall,” and a kind of meta-fairy tale, Miruna, a Tale received the Bucharest Writers Association Fiction Award in 2007.
