Screwed: Dancing with the Generals
This intriguing memoir takes you inside Ceauș:escu’:s Romania, where Sergiu Viorel Urma was the sole reporter for the Associated Press from 1974 through 1987.
Urma’:s narration begins in May 2014, when he returned to his native country for a chance to see the dossier compiled by the Securitate, Romania’:s version of the Soviet KGB. It had taken him nine years to access his folder. And now, he cannot believe his eyes…:
Urma goes on to chronicle his eventful career path, taking readers back to his senior year at Bucharest University, the same year Moscow and its Eastern Bloc allies—:with the exception of Romania—:invade Czechoslovakia to stifle the Prague Spring.
In 1973, after a twenty-three-year period during which the Associated Press did not have a reporter in Romania, the agency opens a Bucharest bureau and hires Urma as an assistant. The following year, he becomes the only reporter working for a Western agency in the country—:and the West is very curious to know what Ceauș:escu is up to…:
The newly surfaced dossier sheds light on Urma’:s time as a reporter in Romania, highlighting just how dangerous the political climate was during this fascinating chapter of modern history.
