About the Author:

Essayist, poet, All Things Considered commentator, and MSNBC columnist Codrescu has published numerous books, including Selected Poems: 1970-1980, Road Scholar, and A Craving for Swan, a collection of his NPR commentaries. Born in Romania, he came to the U.S. in '66, and currently resides in New Orleans and teaches at Louisana State Univ.

From Library Journal:

"I am writing this literally in the ruins of the Communist world, in my hometown of Sibiu, Romania," writes Codrescu at the beginning of his 21st book, a long, uneven essay of at times pontifical statements by a minor poet whose contributions to his adopted country, while often interesting, are usually unexceptional. Like some emigres from Central or Eastern Europe, especially those who lack the talent or the reputation of, say, a Solzhenitsyn or a Kundera, Codrescu takes America to task for its superficiality, its lack of some quality seemingly found only where a lack of personal freedom ensures the primacy of the word over the image. Readers who feel the need to read Codrescu will be better served by his poems.
