The Europe of 2031 is gripped by conflict and division, consisting of small, regional states that only share a mutual enmity. Travel is forbidden and numerous, isolated sub-networks have replaced the Internet. Defying the border restrictions, a group of Erasmus students decide to reunite and celebrate thirty years of friendship. They are supported in this difficult task by the Europeanists, a clandestine association which still fights to bring unity and peace to the continent.
The book falls in the category of adventure/dystopian fiction and is made up of two installments: Along the Danube, already available in English, and Mediterranean Ocean, which will be published in April 2017. The main topics of An Erasmus Story are:
"He was completely alone, and he knew nothing about the place he was headed with a little suitcase, a ticket to ride, and the promise of a meeting. He savored that for a moment, then he laughed with a feigned calmness. All this uncertainty made him incredibly happy."
"He ate with Klára and some other friends from the student body almost every evening. Despite the cold room, the run-down furniture and a refrigerator that only worked sometimes, the young students could have been in the great hall of some famous castle, complete with banquets, speeches, concerts, parties and dances."
"A heaping plate of pasta, a fine wine, and the right musical ambiance made everyone seem intimate and open to discussion, much more than the nightly news would have you believe."
