Truman Press Presents: "The Last Winter" by Adrian Grigore

Why Bookstore Owners Should Consider Displaying "The Last Winter"


"The Last Winter" is a captivating book that delves into the agony of a researcher and the honest Romanian intelligentsia during the tumultuous period following the overthrow of Nicolae Ceausescu's dictatorship in late 1989. The author, Adrian Grigore, skillfully portrays the deprivations imposed on the Romanian public as the country underwent an ambivalent switch to a market economy. This book offers a unique perspective on the challenges faced by Romanian society during this time.


The lead character, a researcher, finds himself caught between two ostensibly different worlds that hardly differ in reality. Both worlds were products of the same clique of politicians who only paid lip service to Eastern Europe's political U-turn of the 1990s. Through the character's struggles, readers gain insight into the difficulties of adjusting from a Communist regime to a mock capitalism. The book explores the researcher's self-denying struggle to preserve the fundamental values of mankind, symbolized by the endangered library of his own research institute and Assurbanipal's famous library in Nineveh.


While the researcher's journey ends tragically, the author provides a silver lining by showcasing the power of fundamental values. Grigore believes that despite the challenges faced, these values will eventually prevail. This thought-provoking ending adds depth to the narrative and leaves readers with a sense of hope.
