About Brigid Pasulka
Brigid Pasulka, the descendant of Polish immigrants, first arrived in Krakow in the early nineties, with no contacts, no knowledge of the language, and only a vague idea of Polish culture. She quickly fell in love with the place, learned Polish, and decided to live there for one year. She currently teaches English at a magnet high school in her native Chicago, and is still a frequent visitor to Krakow. An award-winning short story writer, "A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True" is her first novel.
