My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Poets, Artists, Lovers by Romanian writer, Mira Tudor, is packed with ideas and complicated relationships but short on actual plot. The look at intertwined, evolving relationships both romantic and platonic travels back and forth in time over the course of a decade or so. This back and forth timeline adds to the confusion or who is connected to who and when.
Despite its shortcomings, Poets, Artists, Lovers is a fascinating looking into the lives of young – 20s and 30s – creative Romanians. The youths of these characters if very different from my own.
