KIRKUS REVIEW

, an guard Pole whose life has spanned cabarets, concentration an and army and since the Iron Curtain, now proves himself one of the of the age with his devastating Unkempt Thoughts. As a book of aphorisms, the genius of its genre is everywhere apparent: Lee can plupoint the political nightmare (Evil, too, only wants to make us happy) or be profound (The finger of God never leaves identical fingerprints) or (Life is not becoming to everyone); he can offer the (A man who is a genius and doesn't know it probably isn't) as well as thru-the mill humanism ( I want to get out). Immensely quotable, intensely disturbing, yet always wickedly amusing, he is a master of the bitter illumination, the existentialist guffaw; he makes a notable debut. In his first transatlantic crossing, which we suspect won't be his last.
