It is fantastic work… This is easily the best manuscript I have read in the last ten years.

Bogusia puts words together in startling ways; that and her stunning use of image create a riveting, at times surreal, effect. Hers is a powerful and unique voice. We hope she continues to think of Galway as her second home, her literary home, because she is such an asset to our literary life.
Susan Miller DuMars, Galway, Ireland

 

 

I read some of your poems and like them for sheer beauty of imagery and word painting. I read you as a gifted artist of words and phrases. Your poems have power to move hearts.
Jaydeep Sarangi, Calcutta, India

 

 

You read like a Nobel Prize winner.

Amongst the most intriguing features of your poems are their landscapes and their details of plants and fruit (e.g. cloudberries) unfamiliar to most English readers who grew up in towns and cities, cannot even visualise the plants and birds of their own countryside (and that many fashionable English poets do not write about it).
Alison Brackenbury, Gloucestershire, England

 

 

Thanks for the extraordinary poem “Stockholm Syndrome.” I’ve long been intrigued by the contradictions and ambiguities of Polish history and culture. Even your first stanza is rich, but it just gets better.
