Review

A coming-of-age tale of three young Polish women [that is] brimming with teary epiphanies, betrayal and love, as well as the grit of both New York and Kielce. [It s] Girls with a Polish accent. The New York Times
An ennui-stricken actress returns to the old country and to the friends of her youth in Dagmara Dominczyk s The Lullaby of Polish Girls, in which solidarity is all about summer evenings under the stars with a vodka bottle and a radio playing Forever Young. Vogue

Compelling . . . an original portrait of friendship and identity . . . Dominczyk uses a fresh, confident style. People (3-1/2 stars)

In this arresting debut novel, Polish American film and TV actress Dominczyk pays homage to her native city of Kielce while capturing the joys, insecurities, and struggles of three girlfriends coming of age. Spanning thirteen years, Dominczyk s absorbing story is a triptych of tsknota (Polish for a kind of yearning) and a profound desire for acceptance, freedom, and home. Booklist (starred review)

Fresh and revelatory. Publishers Weekly

The narrative moves around seamlessly in both time and place, from Europe to Greenpoint, a Polish neighborhood in New York City s Brooklyn, and to the Midwest. The cast of characters is equally broad in scope, yet each one is richly imagined. . . . This debut is not to be missed. Library Journal
"Captivating . . . There's an honesty and realism to the writing and emotions." The Star Ledger
The Lullaby of Polish Girls is a striking and vivid debut novel, absolutely buzzing with energy. Dagmara Dominczyk s freshly observed story about the intertwined lives of three friends is both sexy and sensitive, with a raw, openhearted center. Dominczyk s love for her complicated characters is apparent from the first page to the last, and by the novel s end the reader cares for them just as deeply. Emma Straub, author of Laura Lamont s Life in Pictures

The Lullaby of Polish Girls will make you swoon. Dagmara Dominczyk has written a glorious debut novel inspired by her own emigration from Poland to Brooklyn with depth, intensity, humor, and grace. Dagmara is a natural-born storyteller. I m crazy about this book, and I know you will be too. Adriana Trigiani, author of The Shoemaker s Wife

From the Back Cover

This is a story of... Three Polish girls, Anna, Justyna and Kamila, born in a time of Communism, bred on idyllic summers and separated by unforeseen circumstances.
This is a journey of... Three women who finally found their way back home to each other.
This is a summer of... Upheaval, heartbreak and discovery.
When Anna learns her oldest friend Justyna has suffered a terrible tragedy, it's the perfect excuse to abandon her own crisis in New York and hurry back to Poland. But when Anna arrives in her hometown, the reunion does not turn out as expected. It's finally time to face the past - everything it promised, and everything it shattered.
