‘Antal’s mixture of righteous indignation and self-deprecating wit brings his predicament to life without making light of its darker side . . . [This is] a book written from a firmly anti-government point of view and interspersed with details, some sentimental and some hilarious, of his life from an untamed childhood in a remote Transylvanian village to the moment in December 1989 when he found himself storming the Romanian television building in his dressing-gown. Antal’s lively style and attention to wacky detail transform Out of Romania into a unique and valuable, not to mention hugely entertaining, slice of social history.’ Irish Times
