Issue 121: Made in Poland

Cover for Edinburgh Review 121 Made in Poland

Issue 121

Made In Poland is a dynamic collection of new writing and debate. It brings new writing from some of Poland’s leading writers and discussion of the Polish arts scene. Desirée Elfström’s photographs complement articles exploring the contemporary and historical connections between Scotland and Poland, notably Catherine Czerkawska’s discussion of her own Polish heritage and Hannah Adcock’s presentation of the medical links between the two countries.
