Biographical Note

Norman Manea, 1936- , is a Romanian author. He was born on July 19, 1936 in Bukovina, Romania. During World War II, Manea and his family were sent to a concentration camp in Transnistria. They all survived. He returned to his hometown, where he excelled in school. His first profession was engineering, and he graduated from the Construction Institute in Bucharest in 1959 with a master's degree in hydraulic engineering. After publishing several works of fiction, Manea turned to writing full-time in 1974. He has published approximately twenty novels, short stories, and essays, and he has received several awards. Many of his works focus on Judaism, life in communist Romania, and the Holocaust. Forced into exile in 1986 after being censored by the Romanian government and the nationalist press, Manea eventually emigrated to the United States. He lives in New York City where he works as a professor and writer in residence at Bard College.
