Nora Iuga

Nora Iuga was born on 4 January 1931 and made her debut in 1968 with the collection of poems It Isn’t My Fault. Because of their “morbid eroticism,” Iuga’s work was banned by the communist censors between 1971 and 1978. Since then, she has published 15 collections of poems, including The Hunchbacks’ Bus (2001, rpt. 2010), and, most recently, The Wet Dog is a Willow Tree (2013).
