Writers, politicians and journalists launched their books at Gaudeamus

Celebrated historian Neagu Djuvara attended a signing session promoting his latest book on Saturday

“Some rather racy memories and stories” by historian Neagu Djuvara was launched at the Gaudeamus international Book and Education Fair, in Bucharest, Nov 25-29. Also on Saturday, there was launched the volume “Exercises in Freedom” by former PM Adrian Nastase. The launch was attended by Nastase’s wife, Dana, his elder son, Andrei, and Social Democratic Party (PSD) honorary president Ion Iliescu. “It is a daily account of domestic and international events. Reading the book, you will see that president Traian Basescu is a common feature of his analyses. While this is Nastase’s obsession, it also reflects a certain state of fact in the Romanian society,” Iliescu said. In his turn, historian Adrian Cioroianu launched his first fiction book this past weekend. Describe as a novel about illusion, jealousy and the fear of being alone, “Adultery with Figs and Seagulls” is a Latinity store. “A volume which is neither historic nor political, but a love story,” said the author. TVR journalist Adelin Petrisor launched his photography volume “North Korea, a camp as big as a country,” a photography book made after his exceptional visit to North Korea, a country all but closed to westerners. Some of the photographs in the volume were awarded in the „Editorial non-pro” section of the International Photography Awards in the United States, according to tvrinfo.ro. Also, journalists Cristian Hostiuc, editorial director at “Ziarul Financiar” and Sorin Pislaru, editor-en-chief at the same newspaper, yesterday launched the books “We all owe a bankruptcy. 6 years of economic myopia seen by the Ziarul Financiar” director (written by Cristian Hostiuc) and “The PIB <GDP> Without a Country. How to rebuild the trust in Romania” (Sorin Pislaru).
