A Country In The Moon Summary

A Country In The Moon: Travels In Search Of The Heart Of Poland by Michael Moran

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.

A Country In The Moon Reviews

'Erudite, humbling and rhapsodic A... No thinking traveller interested in Poland should overlook this essential book.' Guardian'Moran is a sensitive, intelligent companion, as able to capture the rapacious spirit and chaotic conditions of modern Poland as he is the mournful, savage ghosts of its past. The result is moving and absorbing' Metro 'A Country in the Moon is literary travel writing at its best: elegiac, informative and profound. It's probably the best travel book I will read this year.' Wanderlust'A well-crafted, spirited and original polonaise, triumphantly balancing humour with scholarship' Observer'There is so much to admire in this well-researched and hugely entertaining book, and so much to learnA...if you fancy elegant erudition, A Country in the Moon is a three-star feast' - Time Out
