"No-one knows about my adventure (Sensation of happiness.)"

Up on Hotel today, a first-time English translation of work by Romanian poet, journalist, theorist and erstwhile surrealist, Geo Bogza.

'175 minutes in Mizil' [1940], translated by Diana Duta, is a Perecquian reportage about provincial banality. Through a minutious description of his every step, Bogza leads us into a boring, quiet, infinitely dusty Mizil. He has one hundred and seventy-five minutes to spend there – from which he doesn’t expect much – but he spells that time out for us minute-by-minute: http://bit.ly/2jrSKN0.
