My Wilderness in the City

Recently, while cleaning out the clutter in my basement, I found this short story among manuscripts and old letters crammed in a cardboard box. I read it, and was touched by the youthful and unadulterated naiveté of the piece. It had been published in a literary journal in Bucharest when I was in my early my twenties, and later, in the US, in my wife’s translation, in a literary magazine sponsored by the University of Connecticut where I was pursuing a Master’s Degree.
