Romanian Institute of Culture, Universitas Publishing House invite you to an author's meeting with Dan Coman, a Romanian writer, author of a novel published in Polish Parochia and the translator of the book Joanna Kornaś-Warwas. The conversation will be led by Jakub Kornahuser. ICC is an event partner.

In the announcement of the book prepared by the Universitas Publishing House we read: Parochia is a bizarre monograph of a certain imaginary village from the time of the tragic and grotesque dictatorship of Ceauşescu and at the same time a false, ironic Bildungsroman, which mixes religiousness, fantasy, village and politics. [...] Dan Coman's unusual novel combines the proseism of a realistic narrative with the lyricism of a ghostly imagination emerging from banal everyday life. 

Dan Coman – Romanian poet, prose writer, born in 1975 in the family of an Orthodox priest. He grew up in the presbytery (title parochia). He lives in Transylvania, Bystrzyca, where he teaches in high school. He says about himself that he is neither a poet nor a prose writer: "My novels are actually not prose, and my volumes do not contain poems. I write books like monolithic buildings made of one element".
