is a book aspiring writers should read just to study the craft. Goldin calls on everything he knows from the silly to the profound to create a story that starts out entertaining and winds up being thought-provoking. --Great Books Under $5
Fast moving, well-written, tongue-in-cheek dramatic comedy so representative of real-life in some aspects, it felt like coming home. I found the story laugh-out-loud surprising at times. I thoroughly enjoyed Polly!

All hands on Decalogue!
A protagonist readers will find it easy to identify and empathize with, a classic journey story told with wit, wisdom and deceptive ease, and the most interesting guest star ever--what's not to like, here? Perhaps writers who attempt a book like Polly!
wanna crack or two across the face for their audacity (to parrot conventional wisdom)--but not if they can manage to pull it off this entertainingly.
