Praise for Beginning with My Streets

“Few writers in our time can rival Milosz’s ability to render justice to the strange spectacle of the world. We should be grateful for the wisdom of his extraordinary life.” —Jaroslaw Anders, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Milosz really does begin with his streets—the streets of pre-war Wilno, now Vilnius—which he invests with all the magical other-worldliness and evocative power that make his poetry live . . . This is a book well worth dipping into, permeated with arresting thought and observation.” —Adam Zamoyski, The Times (London)

“[Milosz] is the voice of experience and knowledge. He is a classic.” —Alberto Manguel, The Washington Post Book World
