Paul reviews Olga Tokarczuk's Flights, translated from the Polish by Jennifer Croft. This book was recently shortlisted for this year's Man Booker International Prize.
In 1981 Krzysztof Kieslowski created one of his first films about how chance, rather than choice, directs our lives: Blind Chance. The film was finished just before Poland declared marshal law, and the film was ultimately shelved until 1987, when it came out in a censored version. Today, The Criterion Collection is releasing the uncensored version on Blu-ray and DVD. Trevor takes a look at the film and the Criterion release itself. Read the full post.
