Critics about

“Maybe Ovidiu Verdes isn’t Salinger, but he’s not far off. His Musics and Antics remains the most authentic, most vivid, most cheering and most nostalgic piece of Romanian prose that I’ve read in the last ten years. Such a book puts to shame the entire pretentious experimentalism of the 1980s, as well as the far more vulgar oral style of the last decade.” 


“If it weren’t what it seems—a novel about adolescence, written with the mentality and words of a teenager — Musics and Antics would win a definite and unmistakable place in the Romanian prose of today.”

(Mircea MARTIN)
