Adela Sinclair, La Revedere

Adela Sinclair’s La Revedere

According to the publisher’s notes, “…she proceeds to return to her life in communist Romania memory by memory, sense by sense (taste, sight, touch), confrontation, longing, and, ultimately, a resolve to commit to the promise of New York City’s streets.

“A rich combination of necessary documentation of daily life during communism, memorial to her family’s struggle, unthinkable tragedy, personal song, and quest for place, Sinclair is uncompromising in her assertion of her own womanhood in every step of her journey.”

Here’s the good news…

Mop up notes

Local artist and Roosevelt Island Visual Art Association member Tony Vita designed the cover of the book. And RIVAA member Esther Piaskowski took the author photos that will be on the book jacket. 

Adela Sinclair’s mom is pastelist Georgette Sinclair who also escaped communist Romania for life in New York City.
