Here is a book about a man, supposedly a writer, who tries to write a novel, because he promised his readers he would. But he doesn t have anything to say. He keeps erasing what he writes, and rewriting it, without having the slightest idea where he s going with it. Soon enough he realizes that looking out of the window, sitting in front of his typewriter, describing anything and everything, is not enough to write a novel. His three friends, Edmond, Edgar, and Edouard, will aid him in his task . . . Pigeon Post will be the second book Dalkey Archive has published by the Romanian writer Dumitru Tsepeneag (after the critically acclaimed Vain Art of the Fugue), and we will be publishing more of his works in the years to come."

About Dumitru Tsepeneag

Dumitru Tsepeneag (born 14 February 1937) was a leading member and theorist of the Romanian 'oneiricist' group in the late 1960s and early 70s, before the communist regime suppressed the literary movement. The regime viewed Tsepeneag as a troublemaker and in 1975 Ceausescu himself personally signed the decree stripping him of his Romanian citizenship, thus forcing him into exile. He settled in Paris, continuing to write literary work in Romanian, and later in French, as well as publishing extensively in the press. Since 1990, he has commuted between Paris and Bucharest.
