According to the online edition
of Evenimentul Zilei, Mircea Cartarescu
is the contemporary writer with the largest number of translated books. 30 of his works have been translated in 12 different languages.
After being translated into Spanish, "De ce iubim femeile" (Why do we love women") became one of last year's best sold books in Spain. The Romanian author is going to have his entire work translated into German in the near future.
Cartarescu is my absolute favorite contemporary writer. The first book I read was "Nostalgia", borrowed from my good friend Oana. Then I read most of what he had published, including two diaries.
As of 2006, the Romanian Cultural Institute is helping Romanian writers getting their works translated, as stated in the same article. The Institute's projects might bring several Romanian authors into the spotlight of the international scene.Authors
