"Grim, glancingly beautiful, always necessary."—Joshua Clover
"One of the most important books of our time: these are at once unsettling and comforting, timely and wryly moving poems about the laughable annoyances, limited joys, and the never fully present sorrows of cosmopolitanism, the life of the citizens of the world."—Gabriel Gudding
"Wróblewski is the true poetic chronicler of our 21st century diaspora in all its absurdities and anxieties.... KOPENHAGA is a journey to the end of the night that always makes a U-turn in the middle, to take in the latest folly—and also self-rescue mission—of the transplant. Read it and weep—and then laugh!"—Marjorie Perloff
