Stanislaw Borokowski

Born in Warsaw under the Communist regime, Stanislaw Borokowski emigrated to Vienna as a child and has lived there ever since. Having worked for years as a newspaper distributor, he began publishing and performing his poetry and slowly gained a reputation in his adopted homeland for his irreverent, humorous, revelatory texts. His work has been featured in numerous journals and anthologies and his first volume of poems, der halbherzige anarchist und andere texte, was released in 2007. In addition, his blog Briefe an Michail Gorbatschow enjoys a cult following among German-language readers.
