"In Romani culture, when enjoying music we don't say, 'Did you hear that?' We say, 'Did you feel that?' I didn't just read Cazzarola! I felt it. As a Romani woman who has lived in Italy, this very relatable novel often echoed the pages of my own life. Bravo, Ta Aves Baxtalo!" --Julia Lovell, Romani activist and filmmaker
"Cazzarola! is a powerful, blunt, epic scream against social injustice." --David Lester, author, The Listener
"A brilliant title for a brilliant story of love and rage, which the author shares with his characters in every page. Cazzarola! reads like a film, a sort of Bertolucci's Novecento recast in contemporary Italy. Nawrocki skillfully manages to interweave scene of everyday Italian life and fine psychological analysis in a grandiose historical fresco." --Davide Turcato, historian and editor, The Complete Works of Errico Malatesta
"A stunning achievement!" --Ron Sakolsky, author, Swift Winds
"Nawrocki's interweaving of characters' questionings and challenges presents a microcosm of the fundamental idea of an anarchism that nourishes the dialectic of individual liberty within a community." --Steve Izma, Fifth Estate
"Cazzarola! touches the heart, shakes it between wrath and sympathy." --Peter Seyferth, Anarchist Studies
