Book Description:

In Velvet Totalitarianism, Claudia Moscovici makes her readers viscerally feel the corrosive psychological demoralization and numbing fear totalitarian regimes impose on those who live under them. At the same time, with style and wit, and informed by her experiences as a child in communist Romania and then as an immigrant in the United States, she tells a story of resilience and hope. Velvet Totalitarianism is a novel well worth reading, both for its compelling narrative and for its important message.

About the Author:

Bio
 
Claudia Moscovici is the author of "Velvet Totalitarianism," a critically acclaimed novel about a Romanian family's survival in an oppressive communist regime due to the strength of their love. This novel is being republished in translation in her native country, Romania, and in France. Currently she's finishing two works about psychopathic seduction: a novel called "The Seducer," which has deliberate echoes of the nineteenth-century classic "Anna Karenina" and a nonfiction book about psychopathic predators called "Dangerous Liaisons: How to Identify and Avoid Psychopathic Seduction." In 2002, she co-founded with Mexican sculptor Leonardo Pereznieto the international aesthetic movement postromanticism.com, devoted to celebrating beauty, passion and sensuality in contemporary art. She published a book on Romanticism and its postromantic survival called "Romanticism and Postromanticism," (Lexington Books, 2007) and taught philosophy, literature and arts and ideas at Boston University and at the University of Michigan. Born in Bucharest, Romania, she writes from her experience of life in a totalitarian regime, which marked her deeply.
