English poems of leading contemporary British poets are presented side by side with their Slovak translations, showcasing the poets' personal recollections and observations concerning Slovakia and the wider society. A set of full-colour photographs complements the words and reflect the country's unique character, away from clich d representations. The book is an artwork and invitation for readers to experience this beautiful country with all their senses, in an authentic, personal way.
