In this uproarious memoir and meticulously researched cultural journey, writer Michael Moran keeps company with a gallery of fantastic characters. 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. This captivating journey into the heart of a country is a timely and brilliant celebration of a valiant and richly cultured people.

“Hurrah For Poland!”

The title of this splendid book is taken from Edmund Burke, who in 1795 observed that “with respect to us, Poland might be, in fact, considered as a country in the moon”. The moon?! That pale and lifeless orb? No no... More
