Two Short Novels (Douǎ romane scurte)  

With translation in Romanian by poet and scholar Elena Ţăpean (Bibliotheca Universalis, 2017). 

Linda or Lydia  &  Stephen’s Lake (a novel in parts)

Stephen’s Lake (a novel in parts) is a poetical novel of sublimation, cruelty and voluptuous horror where every word, every gesture, and every description, precipitate self-remembering.

“Hermetic eroticism.  A love affair obviously, hints of incest, revelation and even murder (the marginalia is essential).  Perhaps the strongest aspect of Stephen’s Lake is the reoccurring sense that an emotional state is every bit as visible, and valid, as the physical world.”  —Jake Berry on Stephen’s Lake (a novel in parts) 

Cover: Nude sitting on a divan by Amedeo Modigliani
