Are you fascinated by this country of forty million, rich in natural beauty, cultured, and famous for its people's wanderlust? Have you ever wondered what makes your Polish plumber or waitress or doctor over here tick? What book do you pick for background and insight? A superficial travel guide? A dry history book? No! You need the genre-busting Polska Dotty. Follow the hilarious exploits of a newly-wed English lad and Polish girl as they settle in Poland and encounter corrupt Polish police, counterfeit software sellers, and scammy private doctors. Observe as Jonathan, under the watchful eye of Marzena, gets to grips with the Polish condition, and finally integrates - completing his rite of passage by learning how to down tumblers of vodka in one mighty gulp. Polska Dotty informs about every aspect of Polish society including its work ethic, family values, and the Polish character itself. This is a funny, heartfelt, sparkling read, a touching portrayal of an Englishman's submersion into Polish life.

About Jonathan Lipman

Jonathan Lipman was born in Oxfordshire, England in 1968. In the 1980s he encountered many temporary emigres from Eastern Europe - including Russians, Romanians and... Poles. They were visitors to his father's team that pioneered wind energy in the UK. Conversations with them would range far and wide, from the flaws in Capitalism to the evils of Communism, from the corrupt West to the post-Communist "Wild East," from Keynes to Marx and Engels. Little did Jonathan know this would stand him in good stead when, at the age of 25, he'd meet a variety of Eastern Europeans on a course at Oxford University, and fall in love with one of them - a Pole. After qualifying as a lawyer in 1997, Jonathan married Marzena in Cracow, Poland, and they spent the next two years getting to grips with Warsaw. Jonathan worked for a renowned and very Polish law firm- Marzena completed her doctorate. In 1999 they returned to England, where Jonathan could continue to practice in English law. He is now UK Legal Director of a large motor manufacturer moonlighting as an author, or maybe the other way around. Marzena works in consumer affairs. They live in Buckinghamshire, England, where they are slaves to two girls, three fish, and various generations of ipod. Please visit the Polska Dotty website: http: //polskadotty.wordpress.com/"
