Trafika Europe 2 - Polish Nocturne

Ten short takes

Kasia Buczkowska

Kasia Buczkowska (born in Poland) is an author and translator in New York City, who writes very short fiction in Polish and English. She studied English Philology at the University of Warsaw and English Literature and Film at Columbia University, and she says that she “fell into writing fiction,

felicitously” living in New York. She has published her “short takes” (so named by Rosanna Warren) in Literary Imagination, Clarion, and in Przegląd Polski , the cultural supplement to Nowy Dziennik in New York, to which she also contributes articles and reviews. Six of the following short takes come from her book length collection, in Prose, after which are four new pieces by the author. All have a quality of foreignness to the voice, forming quirky folk-tales and vignettes, urban and pastoral.

Kasia Buczkowska writes every story in her native Polish and in English.
