Andrei Ruse in B O D Y

“If Americans have their dozens, their hundreds of cartoon superheroes or Hollywood starlets with their perfect smiles, if Christians have their God and Muslims have their Allah, if gays have George Michael and girls who just got their first pubes have Lady Gaga, he now has Little Mary. That’s what he’s called her, no matter what her real name may be.”

Little Mary” by Andrei Ruse and translated from Romanian by Anca Bărbulescu is the second installment of B O D Y’s Sunday European Fiction series.

Andrei Ruse is a poet and novelist who has initiated various online cultural projects in Romania such as Hyperliteratura. He was featured at the 2013 Leipzig Book Fair and has his work promoted throughout Europe by languages4literature, a cultural platform promoting Romanian authors and stories run by Anca Fronescu.

More Romanian fiction is on the way in B O D Y.
