Polonaise: Stories by Anthony Bukoski The twelve short stories in Bukoski's third collection are both a dirge and an homage to a passing way of life for the East End neighborhood of Superior, Wisconsin. "Hurry, our closing is imminent," a priest in the single remaining Catholic church exhorts a Polish emigre seaman at the start of a confession. Without a spiritual or economic focus, Superior's Polish American residents create new places to worship--in a roadside confessional owned and operated by an entrepreneurial junkman, deep below the city's streets in the basement of a pair of nervous, middle-aged twin spinsters, in a seedy lakeshore cafe where reports of a long-sleeping youngster create a neighborhood tourist attraction. On the streets and docks of the world's most inland port, Bukoski's characters struggle to understand what went wrong in a city where everything is closing or decaying. Sailors return with diseases of body and soul, a frantic woman searches for her child lost almost a half-century ago, a self-deluded widower seeks love over the telephone, and a compulsive braggart shrinks in stature as his chest expands with the ever more elaborate lies he tells. Despite their failures and the crumbling of their world, Bukoski's characters survive with wry humor, dignity, and grace. In the sorrow and joy of their struggles, these East End residents remind us of the power of our own humanity.
