Book of the Week / Wioletta Grzegorzewska / Smena’s Memory

 

 

 

 

 

This first collection from one of Poland’s most promising poets spans the course of an already rich publishing career, covering her childhood and the experience of growing up in post-Communist Poland to her most recent struggles with life in England and the continuation of her existence as a woman of letters on foreign soil. This is the first time her work has been published in English, representing an important moment for contemporary poetry produced outside of Poland.

 

The book also contains the poems in the original Polish.
