"The Book of Theophil Magus or 40 Tales about Man is situated in the strange no man's land where everyday life becomes truly magical. I consider these writings as splendid expressions of a unique vision of our fragmented but marvelously exciting world. Leonard Oprea's style combines a discovery of hidden meanings of words with a fabulous sense of secret humor. His works received the highest praises from the most influential critics, who rightly compared his vision to works by Thomas Mann, Borges or Paulo Coelho."
"In The Book of Theophil Magus a great variety of sacred and profane themes, archaic, mythical, contemporary ( Moses, Gandhi, Christmas, children, journalism, pilgrimage etc.) serves as vivid stimulation for this literary adventure, written with humor, knowledge and wit... in an inviting dialogue with the reader."
"Leonard Oprea's 40 Tales about Man range from the depiction of the everyday to the mythological and Borgesian to the religious. Honored with numbers of prizes in his native Romania, this writer is a true iconoclast and a true talent."
