Opening in Krakow's legendary cabaret cafe, Jama Michalika, 'Even the Crows Say Kraków' takes the reader on a by turns fanciful and philosophical flight around the magical Polish city. The story won the first Norwich Prize for Literature and thus now links two UNESCO cities of Literature, Norwich and Krakow.

In 'Apple Vapours' a young man who can't stay out of trouble inherits a small house in a remote Eastern European village. Will this finally change his fortunes?
