“In his exceptional and precise debut novel, Controlled Conversations, Karol Lagodzki delivers a taut, psychologically rich literary thriller set in morally fraught, Soviet-controlled 1980s Poland. (...) With a courageous voice, Lagodzki assumes the mantle of the late John le Carré.” - Fredrick Soukup, author of Ashes, Ashes

"Karol Lagodzki's debut novel (...), set in 1980s Poland under Martial Law, is both taut and timely, reminding us that conflicts in Eastern Europe have the power to shake the rest of the world. The book is riveting, and I loved reading it. I seldom find a contemporary novel this engrossing." - Steve Yarbrough, author of The Unmade World
