Suceava satirizes the events [around the fall of communism] in his native Romania since the violent end of the Ceausescu regime that fateful year. Suceava uses three interrelated narratives to illustrate the destructive power of Romanian society’s most powerful mythologies. He depicts madness of all kinds but especially religious beliefs and their perversion by all manner of outrageous sects. Here horror and humor reside impossibly in the same time and place, and readers experience the vertiginous feeling of living in the middle of a violent historical upheaval.
I'm nearly half-way through it and can definitely recommend it from what I've read so far.
