2017 Caietele Echinox  
The analysis offers an overall perspective on the reading response to magical-realist novels from the 1960s to the present day, focusing on Romanian literature in the new millennium. Within this context, I shall analyze Bogdan Popescu's novel, Whoever Falls Asleep Last (2007), looking for the textual, paratextual and contextual causes that may explain the marginalization and fall into the waste zone "of the great unread" of a "masterpiece."
