This book is the perfect mirror of the emptiness in which welive, in which you don't know if to laugh, to cry, what is normal or just is... Ilike the realist description of the human instincts, those that many let loosein coping with reality, but avoid to face not even when alone in front of themirror. - Carmen B
From the Back Cover
After reading themanuscript, I had no doubt that I was dealing with a novel written withpassion, in a brisk style, that actually mesmerizes the reader to the very lastpage. From our point of view, the debut novel of Emanuel Grigoras is also awarning (and a challenge at the same time) for well-renowned Romanian authors(or those who are just at the beginning of their career) to start exploringthis new opportunity that the digital book imposes.
The Right Place is a novel about each and every one of us. It is anovel about the multiple masks we are wearing on the inside and of which wearen't always aware. It is a novel that speaks to everyone because it talksabout the regular man, the common man. Skillfully resorting to a sequencing techniquethat is unusual for a literary text, gently using the metaphor, the author givesus a range of authentic feelings and sensations--that we are tempted to ignorein this fast and furious world we live in--running the risk of losing what'shuman in us.
The characters thatEmanuel Grigoras has created are to be found next to us in our everyday life:in the subway, on the street, in the park, at the office. They define theregular man, the thousands of people we pass by on the street, without reallyseeing them--if we ever do. The characters of this book are defining unaffectedlya right place for everyone--the right place that everyone chooses in life.
The Right Place is a truthful mirror, observant of the details ofwhich each reader is made up. The right place eventually becomes a space filledwith the images of what we could have been, of what we still could become or ofwhat we really are. Probability, potentiality and reality--they all meet in thegeometric space called The Right Place,harmoniously forming a hyper reality of which we are seldom aware.
In a nutshell, we arewitnessing a consistent debut, one that makes at least one certain promise: wewill surely hear more about the author Emanuel Grigoras.
