Széki Soós János writes great stories from his childhood in the Transylvanian village of Szék [Sic]. This is a tale of the complexities and absurdities of life in Szék during the Ceauşescu era. He weaves in accounts of the technique necessary for handing over “gifts” to the local “milicista”, how and when his parents spoke aloud of matters related to such gifts, of how his uncle became a church builder, and the time he went on an errand with the local “milicista” and a member of the secret police.
