A reading and conversation with Polish author Grażyna Plebanek and a celebration of the publication [...]by New Europe Books of Illegal Liasons (Nielegalne związki, 2010).
A passionate novel of unstoppable physical obsession amongst a group of Brussels eurocrats, Illegal Liaisons offers a fascinating insight into the first Polish generation that is truly 'free', but struggle to know where the boundaries of that freedom lie.--Stork Press
Aspiring writer Jonathan puts his career on hold to follow his wife to Brussels, but finds himself drawn into an affair with the beautiful yet elusive Andrea. What follows is a tormenting battle between conscience and desire. Complex and compelling, Illegal Liaisons is a penetrating work of erotic imagination and a chilling portrait of the nature of love.--New Europe Books
A literary sensation in Poland, it is Plebanek's first novel to be translated into English.
