A Country in the Moon: Travels in Search of the Heart of Poland
Honouring a deathbed pledge to his uncle, Michael Moran set out to travel the length and breadth of Poland in order to get an up-close perspective of the country. In this poignant and insightful account, he gives an insider’s view of a country set on a path of wrenching change while simultaneously confronting ghosts from the wartime and communist past. In chronicling the resurrection of the nation from war and the Holocaust, Moran paints a portrait of cities lost and gained, monumental castles, primeval forests, and picturesque landscape gardens among the finest yet least-known in Europe. This captivating journey into the heart of Poland is a timely and brilliant celebration of the return to the European fold of a valiant and richly cultured nation.
