This title recounts the writer's love for an impoverished Romanian whom he meets while on a journalism assignment. Free of bitterness, nastiness, or any desire to protect himself, he is sustained throughout by little white codeine pills, a poetic self-awareness, a sense of humor, and an unwavering belief in the perfect romance.
