A Deafening Silence is the first UK publication by one of Romania's leading contemporary poets.

At present she is president of PEN Club Romania, and is also a member of the European Cultural Parliament. Her poems have been translated into thirteen languages and have appeared in many anthologies and international reviews. Her Ph.D. thesis was published under the title Art and Power in Romania 1945-1989 (Paris, 2007), and in 2011 her novel FEM was nominated for several national prizes. She has also published several volumes of essays.
