Considered to be the most popular book from Romanian author Mircea Cartarescu, Solenoide is a monumental novel that reminds us of great authors such as Kafka and Pynchon. It is the long diary of an unsuccessful writer living in the sad and grey city of Bucarest. He buys a boat-house which contains a strange machine: a dentist chair provided with controls.
