Since emigrating to the U.S. from the Nosferatu darknesses of his native Romania in 1966, Andrei Codrescu has blazed a rocket-bright trail across the cultural landscape of his adopted country, gaining a national audience as public radio commentator, television personality and editor of the radical literary journal Exquisite Corpse. He has also commanded considerable critical recognition for his poetry (Alien Candor, Black Sparrow, 1996), and fiction (most notably, his novel about his Transylvanian homeland, The Blood Countess, 1995).
