Summary (From the publisher):

The Land of Green Plums is the story of a group of young people in Nicolae Ceauşescu's Romania. Having left their impoverished villages for university in search of education and camaraderie, they quickly find their hopes dashed: the city, no less than the countryside, bears the marks of the dictator's corrosive touch. As the friends betray themselves and each other, we see the way totalitarianism inhabits every human realm, demanding that all bend to the oppressors, or resist--and perish.
