At Hyperallergic, Michael Leong has an excellent overview of Ghérasim Luca’s three books that have thus far appeared in English, including, of course, The Passive Vampire. An appreciation of Luca’s writing in general, he also mentions some recent translations of his poetry that have popped up in journals and seemed to have escaped our notice. Here is one that is available on Poetry International’s website : scroll down to “Dream in Action.” Apparently they’ve published more. Maybe one day they’ll be made available.

And there is presently this exhibition as well of Luca et al. : From Dada to Surrealism: Jewish Avant-Garde Artists from Romania, 1910-1938.
To really get a grasp of what Luca was up to, read The Passive Vampire.
