"Cyrus Console's Romanian Notebook is among the strangest, most compelling representations of human thought in contemporary literature . . . The thoughts Console records during his voyage are like highly formal buildings with reinforced structures that resist the pressure of time and the elements. . . . The length and complexity of Console’s sentences teach us, like Proust’s, that the natural language of thought is not speech but writing."
Michael W. Clune, Los Angeles Review of Books
