"This a brash, abrupt, challenging book. . . it is also genuinely bold and intriguing." - Winnipeg Free Press

". . . while Romanik's stories are short, they are rarely simple. And they most certainly aren't easily forgotten." - Edmonton Journal
"A manically, maniacally inventive book. . . an emphatic, striking debut." - The Fiddlehead
From the Back Cover
The characters in 10 Things to Ask Yourself in Warsaw and Other Stories are obstinately bound to the places they inhabit. Whether these worlds involve soccer fanatics, graffiti artists, or robotic teddy bears, the protagonists are violently thrust into situations where they can no longer play the spectator. The collection is edgy and urban, but the spectre of family also tugs at the characters across continents. Stories from this book have appeared in the Journey Prize anthology, Coming Attractions, Prism International and other leading journals.See all Product Description
