A splendid, violent spring suddenly grips Bucharest in the 1980s after a brutal winter. Tolea, an eccentric middle-aged intellectual who has been dismissed from his job as a high school teacher on moral grounds, is investigating his fathers deathMoreA splendid, violent spring suddenly grips Bucharest in the 1980s after a brutal winter. Tolea, an eccentric middle-aged intellectual who has been dismissed from his job as a high school teacher on moral grounds, is investigating his fathers death forty years after the fact, and is drawn into a web of suspicion and black humor.Reading The Black Envelope, one might think of the poisonous black milk of Celans Death Fugue or the claustrophobic air of mounting terror in Mr. Appelfelds Badenheim 1939. . . . Mr. Manea offers striking images and insights into the recent experience of Eastern Europe.--New York Times Book Review
