More About Ewa Lipniacka

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! The Lipniackis arrived in Britain (via Siberia and Palestine) when Ewa was three. She was educated in a Polish convent boarding-school in Northamptonshire, and progressed to London University where she took a degree in Polish.
In her late teens she was one of the first English Poles to set out to rediscover the real Poland, and found a vast family stretching from the Wolomin Poles to the Poles of Cze?stochowa. She has been extending this network ever since. A naturalised Willesden Pole, she maintains close links with the Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Rugby and Galashiels Poles. Her home has become a central node on the Polish world trade routes linking the Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan and Gdansk Poles with the New York, New Jersey, Toronto, Melbourne, Venezuela, South Africa and Patagonia Poles. Like bindweed, Polish roots are long and indestructible.
A librarian by profession, she can be found most Saturdays at the Polish Library in Hammersmith. She has written several rarefied works on librarianship and a clutch of childrens picture books - most of which are illustrated by her cousin, a Balham Pole

Reviews - What do customers think about The Xenophobe's Guide to the Poles?

Everything you need to know about Poles  Aug 14, 2004
Everything you need to know about Poles is contained in this book in the nutshell: plenty of useful information but with lots of humor. It is concise in format (pocket size) yet very informative. The author is a critical but gifted observer of Polish life from the outside (British) perspective. She likes Poles with all their good and bad habits. This outside perspective and the ability of comparing Polish and British habits is definitively very helpful. I recommend it to everybody who wants to understand deeper Polish tradition and culture, who has family or friends of Polish origin or who wants to visit Poland soon. Without doubts I give it a straight "A".
Very good intro to a country I knew nothing about.  Oct 15, 1997
The book is short enough to be read in one sitting yet it is not simplistic. The humor keeps the narrative going and the insights into Polish life are from one who obviously knows the people yet has an outsider's (English)grasp of 'foreigners' habits and ways. Excellent book and I have subsequently read some others in the series and they too were high quality!
