What is A?

“A. is a “forgive me!” scream. A “thank you” feeling. Why and what for?…I’ll let you discover...” - Octavian Finaru

Through A, the first letter-novel of all times, Octavian Finaru has created a new species of the epic genre in Romanian literature.

After a brake-up that left many unspoken words behind, he isolates himself in the serenity of the sea, and begins his letter to her. For a year and a half he relieves all their emotions, each and every moment of their story. And then he sends the letter...

The novel “A” is Octavian Finaru's 3rd book, and the first letter-novel of all times.. The whole book, from the first to the last page is actually one letter.

Being he longest letter ever published in a book, “A” is the project that is subject to the author's entry into the Book of Records.

“His” letter to “her”…from the first to the last page. After a brake-up that left many unspoken words behind, he isolates himself in the serenity of the sea, on a vessel, surrounded by water, a place that makes the memories more and more intense…And so he begins his letter to her. Being convinced that she is the best thing that has ever happened to him, for a year and a half, he relieves intensely their story, going from incertitude and rejection to closure and peace.

But the truth behind their encounter is still a mystery. Page by page, Octavian Finaru is taking us one step closer to the disclosure, making all of us - readers and viewers - part of the story that surrounds his protagonist.
