Critics about

How to Forget a Woman is with certainty already a media star and may also become a bestseller or the starting point for a successful screenplay.”

(Mihaela URSA)

“No one will learn how to forget a woman by reading this book, but the reader might learn many things about how to write prose. A novel that is all the more surprising for being very simple. All the levers of the complex narrative structure are excellently camouflaged. And Marga is a genuine lesson on how a character can shine in her own absence. She made me recall, not only because of her name, Cortazar’s Maga, that enigma of Hopscotch.”

(Bogdan Alexandru STĂNESCU)

“Like all Dan Lungu’s books, the novel How to Forget a Woman is a book you can’t put down, from the first page to the last. It is a novel which will certainly not disappoint the ever more numerous fans of Dan Lungu’s writing.”

(Tudorel URIAN)
