Summary
1948. A man is found on the steps of the hospital in Iasi, Romania. Wet with morning dew, he is as frail as a fallen bird and utters no words. It is days before anyone realises that he is deaf and mute. The ward sister, Adriana, whose son still has not returned from the war in Russia, sits at the man's bedside and whispers to him, keeping herself company. But it is a young nurse called Safta who thinks to bring paper and pencils with which he might draw. Slowly, painstakingly, memories appear on the page: a hillside, a stable, a racing car, a grand house as it was before everything changed for ever. Through these pictures, Safta realised she shares the man's history and memories. The man is Augustin, the son of a cook at the manor house in Dumbraveni where Safta was the privileged daughter. While Augustin's world stayed the same size, Safta's expanded to embrace languages, society, the breathless possibility of Paris. But a war has raged and ebbed since those days, leaving in its wake a new Communist regime. Walls have ears, words and images are more dangerous than ever before, and even neighbours cannot be trusted. How can Augustin tell Safta the things he must; things more than drawings can covey?
