BLINDING included in The New Criterion’s Critic’s Notebook

Brian P. Kelly included Mircea Cărtărescu’s Blinding in his Critic’s Notebook on The New Criterion website for September:

Fiction: Blinding by Mircea Cărtărescu, translated by Sean Cotter: A hallucinatory trip through the history of Bucharest, Cărtărescu’s novel follows its protagonist from his family’s early history, through his childhood and adolescence, well into his adulthood and the installation of Communism in Romania. Along the way, surreal dreamscapes dotted with whispering butterflies, zombie armies, and American fighter pilots blend fact and fiction.
