The Bodies That Never Fit Us Well: New Poems by Daniel D. Marin Translated from the Romanian by Liana Andreasen

We’re excited to share with you today an excerpt from the poetry collection the bodies that never fit us well by the Romanian poet and editor Daniel D. Marin, translated by Liana Andreasen. These poems introduce the reader to the mysterious Mr. R and other misfit characters who populate an imaginary world of the “bodies that never fit us well,” dreaming of being accepted in society or of escaping the bleak everyday reality. We’re sure you’ll find these poems both unsettling and unforgettable.
