After the success of her 1999 collection, this new volume of Ewa Lipska's poetry is the next example of her mastery of the art of poetry, condensation, amazingly fresh and stunning metaphors a fresh look at the "old affairs" of Europe and our existence, which is becoming more and more fully objectivised, aseptic, moving away from ordinary humanity towards an elegant, collective alienation. It's a very bitter diagnosis for the world at the beginning of a new millennium.

"Only 23 poems and none of them should be skipped." (Tadeusz Nyczek)
