The 2001 volume O noapte cu Patria ("A Night [in Bed] with the Country") was reported by a few Romanians from North America as "pornographic and anti-Romanian"; as a consequence, Gălățanu faced legal issues, but the critics Nicolae Manolescu and Alex. Ștefănescu contributed with arguments to his bail. Another volume was accused later of being anti-Christian.
He has published more than 15 volumes of poetry, 2 novels and a book of essays. Some of his poems were translated in 8 languages.
