Balada Supraviețuitorului

The full title is

    Balada Supraviețuitorului a lui Sam cel Român

For the paperback version in the United States click here.

For all digital formats, click here.

Just in case it’s not obvious, this book is entirely in the Romanian language (complete with diacritics) and no, there will not be an English version. If you don’t speak Romanian, I’m sorry! :D

Hopefully this book will be launched in Romania in May (2011). When that happens, I’ll put up the links so you can get your hands on it :)

  1. Hello :D
    I clicked the link and searched for the title but there are no results. How can I get it..?

    • Sorry, I had to reformat it for technical reasons. Wait 2 days and it should be ready once again :D

  2. Hehe. Acum, după ce ai scris o carte în română, am să îţi las un comentariu în română.
    Foarte mişto cartea! Bine scrisă şi cu poveşti bune. Se vede că ai trait din plin în România şi sunt de acord cu tine: e o ţară minunată, în ciuda majorităţii oamenilor care se plang, în cele mai multe cazuri fără motive reale. Sper să mai scrii şi alte cărţulii pe viitor.
    Anul ăsta am să fiu nevoit să lucrez şi eu vreo 5-6 luni în Statele Unite. După ce ţi-am citit cartea şi blogul, sunt curios să fac o comparaţie, bazat pe ceea ce ai spus tu.

    Keep on writing and having fun while doing it. I hope Romania still has some surprises in store for you, so it can inspire other books. Enjoy your life there Sam.
    I know I can’t wait to get back ! :)



    • Since there is so many fields of splicaeties that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.

  3. Well u are deffinetly more romanian then me!;)

  4. Your vision is pretty deep. Probably some of the self called Romanians wouldn’t like your message or vision about this country, because it’s kind of funny. I personally understand and appreciate your effort. It would be so nice if one day we will have an American community in Romania.

  5. maybe you’re an rumanian who write in english,that seem interesting ? lol

  6. I am another person who left the country they were living in to make Romania their home. Is this book available from bookshops in Romania? If so, in which ones?

  7. Salutare.
    Astazi am vazut si eu cu ajutorul internetului stirea despre tine la ProTV. Nu pot sa spun decat FOARTE TARE si BRAVO. In 6 luni o sa revin in tara si te invit prin Romania. Calatori scurte de sfarsit de saptamana atat cat o sa-mi permit deoarece in timpul saptamanii sunt la munca.
    Poti vizita si pagina mea de facebook (cu ajutorul adresei de e-mail) unde gasesti fotografi cu locuri pe unde am fost sau urmeaza sa merg in Romania.

  8. Hei Sam , good job at ProTV :D and good luck with Documentary .

  9. Bravo tie ,Sam! Apreciez tot ce faci tu in Romania!
    Iti place spiritul de aventura,nu?…Pentru ca cine ar avea atat curaj,sa traiasca ca si tine?Felicitari!

  10. Am citit-o pe nerăsuflate la servici (deh, român care se oprește să miroasă florile).

    Ceea ce faci tu e să ții o oglindă în mână pentru cine vrea să vadă “the unknown knowns” după cum spune Slavoj Žižek.

    Mulțumesc că ai venit, în sfârșit, în țara mea, americanule, în țara ta, românule.
