[A] delicate, deeply-shadowed book of travels through the culturally blurred hinterlands of the former Eastern Bloc. --J.W. McCormack [H]e writes a slow, meditative prose that allows him to perceive the ancient rhythms under this constant change. --Daniel Trilling [T]he book was so good it filled me with a strong desire to spend more time in the car parks of obscure provincial Polish towns. But it also filled me with an unexpected, new yearning. --Daniel Kalder Fado is a must read for all. --Agnieszka Macoch He gives us a true dispatch from Eastern Europe with the heart of a bohemian. --Monica Carter Stasiuk is . . . an accomplished stylist with an eye for the telling detail that brings characters and situations to life. . . .
