Cold Sea Stories

by Pawel Huelle

These stories could only have been written by a Pole, but do reflect the experiences of all who have lived under repressive regimes or as minorities. In short, Cold Sea Stories is a wonderful mix that should suit every taste. My favourite is 'The Flight from Egypt', which should be required reading for all political and religious leaders.


The article described the refugee camp in Ingushetia, a journey lasting several months and several paragraphs across various borders, at the end of which they got out of a Ukrainian bus and quite literally walked - because they had no transport - into Poland. (From 'The Flight into Egypt')
