Product description

Review

`There is so much to admire in this well-researched and hugely entertaining book, and so much to learn...A Country in the Moon is a three-star feast.' -- The Spectator

'Literary travel writing at its best: elegiac, informative and profound... probably the best travel book I will read this year.'
-- Wanderlust magazine

'Moran writes well of the Polish concept of zal (regret after irrevocable loss) ; of Polish pride, honour and exuberance mingled with pessimism; and of the importance of the Catholic church and the family...This well-written book offers some much-needed history lessons.'
-- Daily Telegraph

'an entertaining account...(keeps)the reader engrossed to the end.' -- Sunday Times

Moran is a sensitive, intelligent companion, [who is] able to capture the rapacious spirit and chaotic conditions of modern Poland.
-- Metro London

Moran's deep knowledge of the country and genuine engagement (make this) an absorbing ... ultimately rewarding travelogue.
-- Independent

This lively and intelligent book is stuffed with original material that is both fascinating and quite new to most people in the West. Moran has a taste for the baroque oddity, the outrageous eccentricity and the all-but-incredible historical anecdote.
-- The Times Literary Supplement

[An] erudite, humbling and rhapsodic travel book... No thinking traveller interested in Poland should overlook this essential book. -- Guardian

`This memoir is in the tradition of Lawrence Durrell's Bitter Lemons and proves a well-crafted, spirited and original polonaise, triumphantly balancing humour with scholarship.'
-- The Observer

`Wonderful'
-- Conde Nast Traveller, Giles Foden

About the Author

Born and educated in Australia, MICHAEL MORAN spent his twenties wandering the islands of Polynesia and Melanesia. He is a Fellow of the RGS and author of the Thomas Cook short-listed Beyond the Coral Sea. He lives in Warsaw.
