There are a number of problems with this blurb about Ionel and his death, those problems do not detract from the beauty of his work.

“Ionel Talpazan […] was a boy in a small village in Romania, given up by his parents and raised by a succession of foster parents. He told interviewers he escaped into the woods one night because he thought he would be beaten.

He saw a blue, beating light in the sky above, and was sure it was a spacecraft.”
