“If you’ve ever wondered what it would have been like to be an American writer with a terrific sense of humor living in Eastern Europe during the transition between something called communism and something called democracy, look no further. In prose and poetry that evokes the high humor and loving sarcasm of the brilliant British novelist David Lodge, James George Coon turns an unflinchingly funny eye on life in Poland and the Czech lands and Hungary during the last 25 years. PS – And don’t neglect to read the notes at the end of the book. They’re a gas!”

John Guzlowski (www.amazon.com/author/johnguzlowski): Professor Emeritus of English Literature at Eastern Illinois University and prolific author of poetry, prose, literary criticism, reviews, fiction, and nonfiction. His award-winning work has appeared in many prestigious publications.

“A fantastic read! An American landing in Warsaw just after the fifty-year commie wonderland disappeared overnight. Like a true thoroughbred writer, James Coon observes what it has done to us Poles and our day-to-day lives, proving that sometimes you may be able to take the folks out of the socialism but you can’t take the socialism out of the folks. I laughed my way from beginning to end!”

Jerzy Seipp (www.seipp.pl): Polish novelist, poet, and film maker. Author of “Królewna” (The Princess), “Angielka” (The Englishwoman), and “Ostatnia Miłość” (Last Love).
