There’s a burst of Polish crime in the UK this week starting at today’s Folkestone Book Festival with the appearance of A.M. Bakalar and Zygmunt Miłoszewski as part of Polish Book Autumnfest. Bakalar’s Madame Mephisto has been reviewed here, while I’ve only briefly noted Miłoszewski’s excellent Entanglement and will have a review of his recently released Grain of Truth soon.
Then on November 5, Bitter Lemon Press is presenting Miłoszewski in a discussion with Polish poet Jacek Dehnel at Daunt Books in London.
Hakl at Havel Library
Czech writer Emil Hakl will be reading new work at the Václav Havel Library’s Montmartre Gallery in conjunction with the opening of an exhibition of pictures by David Němec. The reading will take place on November 6 at 7:00 pm.
