Born Lippy – Jo Brand

You know all this talking how lockdown brought people closer together and made them nicer? Well, I've actually seen some of it happened in my block of flats, small scale, but there's a difference. I think most of the apartments are for rent, it is London, so you can safely assume no one knows any …

Piasek ze Szkła – Joanna Szczepkowska

This book has been wallowing on my shelves for eons. I think I bought it during the summer holiday, before moving o the UK, so more than ten years ago. I've never been to a seaside holiday in my adopted country, but in Poland what you will typically find, among hundreds of places to eat …

Odwiedziny. Rozmowy od dizajnie – Aleksandra Koperda

I have to admit to a little dirty secret. As I walk in the cites I visit, one of my favorite pleasures, especially at dusk, is looking into people's homes. I'm insatiably curious to see how other people's houses are furnished and decorated. Always amazed by the endless ways we can live our life. And …

So if you don't fit in; if you feel at odds with the world; if your identity is troubled and frayed; if you feel lost and ashamed, it could be because you have retained the human values you were supposed to have discarded.

How Did We Get Into This Mess?: Politics, Equality, Nature – George Monbiot

This one I bought what feels like a lifetime ago in Bookmarks in London, during my 12 bookshops for 12 months project in 2018. It was the day of my October bookshop crawl, where the spoils were abundant, I think only now I'm getting them under control. Having just finished Returning to Reims (review in the …

Impas. Opór, utrata, niemoc w sztuce – Maria Poprzęcka

Vīta brevis, ars longa, occāsiō praeceps, experīmentum perīculōsum, iūdicium difficile. Life is short, and art long, opportunity fleeting, experimentations perilous, and judgment difficult. As always let's start with the translation of the title Deadlock. Resistance, loss, lethargy in art. It's a rough one, but I think reflects the gist of the meaning. It's one of the …

Kocie Chrzciny. Lato i Zima w Finlandii – Małgorzata Sidz

This is the third book from my June spree of reading about countries I would not like to live in. The other two were Złote Piachy, about Bulgaria, and North Korea Journal. It's not that I actively have something against Bulgaria or Finland, it's more that they are among many other countries I would not …
