Product Details


“[Wittlin’s essay My Lwów is] for many Poles the definitive evocation of one of their great lost cities. . . a loving, sensuous, but also gently ironic reconstruction. . . Sands’s perspective is closer to that of the contemporary reader, who struggles with the juxtaposition between beauty, faded grandeur, and whimsical visions of a cosmopolitan past on the one hand, and savage mass murder on the other.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

“Congratulations to Pushkin Press for bringing lovely, haunted Lviv to a new audience.” — Times Literary Supplement

“A walk down memory lane, a meditation on time, politics and remembrance.” — Dublin Review of Books 

“Wittlin takes us on a detailed tour of the city… well-illustrated.” — East-West Review

“Beautiful and disturbing songs in prose.” - Kazimierz Wierzyński
