About

Pedro Gandolfo, El Mercurio, August 19, 2018

"Full of humor in some sequences, in other tragic and ferocious, sometimes fantastic and luminous, like a Chagall painting, which is predominant in this wonderful story [ "Zogru"] is the figure of the terrible loneliness in which lies the human spirit ".

Markus Bauer, Neue Zürcher Zeitung

The Phantom is the narrative catalyst that makes secret forces manifest, especially those of a sexual nature, being also the most visible, single faith, dissolved in the last part of the novel.

In my opinion, the confidence, the artistry of portrayal, the exact and original description of the environment, the quest for a subtle epic crescendo, the illusion of stagnation make Doina Ruști a first class prose writer in current literature.’

( Nicolae Breban, when granting the Award of Romanian Academy, 2011)

Extraordinarias cualidades litterarias. (Antonio J. Hbero, La Opinion, 3 01 2015)

Un’ironica e seducente storia,.” (Giuseppe Ortolano – Il Venerdì di Repubblica, 23 marzo, 2012, nr 1253)

Stupefacente è il fuocco di fila di trovate di espressioni pungenti e fulminanti que l'autrice escogita per descrivere situazioni e stati d'animo della sua protagonista. (Alessandra Iadicicco. La Stampa, nr 1815, 12 mai, 2012)

"Fa il verso ai noir fantastici la brava scrittrice rumena Doina Rusti, che ha dato alle stampe Lisoanca , storia di un’undicenne checontagia con la sua sifilide un intero villaggio, mietendo vittime anchetra le coetanee, salvopoirivelarsi una creatura immaginaria venuta da un altro mondo. Il libro si ispira anche ai grandi romanzi «sanitari», come La peste di Camus, dove il crimine attecchisce più facilmente in un contesto di malattia diffusa. questi sono certamente i modelli." (Gianluca Veneziani, Libero, 18 05, 2013)

"Mit ihrem erschütternden Buch über Gewalt an Kindern macht sie sich auch bei uns einen Namen. Das Buch geht unter die Haut und ist eine schwere Kost. Der anspruchsvolle Stil steht im Gegensatz zu der brutaen Handlung." (Martina Freier, ekz)

…even the smallest detail of the novel is veridical…

(Magyar Nemzet, 31 decembrie 2015)

Una historia muy admirable, por cierto, muy bien narrada. Muy recomendable. (Miguel Baquero, La tormenta en un vaso, 16 12. 2014)
