Product description


"Splendid . . . Slight Exaggeration, first published in Polish in 2011 and fluidly translated by Clare Cavanagh, is delightful to read straight through as it riffs, zags and circles. But you could drop down anywhere in this sometimes diaristic, sometimes belle-lettristic book and find something interesting." --Daisy Fried, The New York Times Book Review
