Summary

Michael Moran keeps company with a gallery of fantastic characters in this uproarious memoir and meticulously researched cultural journey. In chronicling the resurrection of the nation from war and the Holocaust, he paints a portrait of the unknown Poland, one of monumental castles, primeval forests, and of course, the Poles themselves. Moranshows the quirky, colorful side of Polish life obscured by memories of communism, but does not neglect dark side of Polish history-anti-Semitism and the Holocaust.This captivating journey into the heart of a country is a timely and brilliant celebration of a valiant and richly cultured people.
