Beyond his courage of choosing difficult, hard to write themes, Costi Gurgu has a subtle humor, expressed at the edge of the authorial seriousness. The discreet manifestations of his humour make for a pleasant experience even with some of his strongly conflictual takes on these already difficult themes. He succeeds in placing his ideas in a light that amuses and in equal measures determines us to meditate.
