Starred Kirkus Review for History of a Disappearance
“An evocative study of a town in Poland’s outback, one scarcely known even in its day…. Lucid and literate: a brilliant model of historical writing about place and a beguiling treat for armchair travelers as well.”
—Kirkus, starred review
“I call this a great book, a superb work of intelligence, originality, and tremendous enterprise.”
