Carla Baricz, Librarian for Comparative Literature and English translates, “Exiled Shadow”

August 22, 2023

In Exiled Shadow, Norman Manea creates a vibrant mosaic of voices, sources, and stories, to tell the story of the protagonist, known only as the Nomadic Misanthrope, as he leaves communist Romania and is reunited with his friend Gunther, an unrepentant Marxist exiled in Berlin. 

In a Q&A with Yale University Press, Carla Baricz talks about how she came to work with Norman Manea, her passion for literature, and the power it has, and what she hopes readers will take away from Manea’s work.
