Ten short takes
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
“fell into writing fiction,
felicitously” living in New York. She has published her
“short takes” (so named by Rosanna Warren) in
, the cultural
in New York, to which she
also contributes articles and reviews.
Six of the following short takes come from her book length
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.
