    I'm not the best judge of poetry, but I did enjoy some of these - the poems based on his past, the places he's been, were beautiful. The rest were OK. ...

    A genuine pleasure to read these! One day I'll read them in (the original) Polish... ...

    My favourites were the poems about his mother, remembering ordinary moments, suffused with regret for not understanding her, or missing the point, or not realizing how precious the ordinary was until too late. ...

    Really mixed reading this. Some of the poems were just like ok this is a poem but then some of them were like.. god damn. 'Childhood', 'Public Speaking Contest', & 'Nocturne' knocked me over. ...
