    1. Dear Mr. Kowalski, I have just finished reading your book “Eddie’s Bastard” and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I am a Vietnam Veteran (Australian) and so many parts of the book resonated so deeply with me. I will now try and hunt down some more of your writings. Regards, Rob Martin.

      1. Thank you so much, Mr. Martin. My new book, THE HUNDRED HEARTS, is about the effects of war on soldiers and their families. I doubt any single book will be able to convince people to end war, but I had to try anyway. Otherwise, what’s the point of having a voice? All best to you. W.K.

    2. Hi Mr. Kowalski, this is teresa and i’ve read one of your book entitled Eddie’s bastard, I so love that book, it inspire me a lot and I’ve learned so much from it. I’ll be your avid reader. I’ll read some of your books. God bless..:)

      1. Thanks, Teresa. I was so moved by our conversation today I wrote about it on my blog. Small world! It was great to speak with you. I wish you all the best.

    3. Dear Mr. Kowalski,
      Your books are so interesting. They seem to be nonfiction rather than fiction. The characters have such normal lives, just like real people do.
      I’d like to tell you a little about me. I am a wife and mother of three children. In Mexico, I only finished fifth grade. I identified with Rosario Gomez in “The Barrio Kings” because he worked hard to get his GED which I am doing. I speak English very well but I am learning to read in the Whatcom Literacy Program.
      “The Barrio Kings” is my favorite book. It is also one of the very first books I read by myself. I finished it in two days! I am excited to read your new book, “Just Gone.” The Library has ordered it for me.
      Please keep writing books for new adult readers. It is important for adults to be introduced to reading for pleasure. Thank you so much for your commitment to adult learners.

    4. As a second generation pole in Baltimore, I was blown away by “The Best Polish Restaurant.” It captured the immigrant experience better than anything I have read. It is a love letter to family. Cannot wait to read more of your writing!

    5. I am an avid reader and just discovered your books! I read Eddie’s Bastard, loved it and had to read more. so I went on to The Good Neighbor. I really liked it, however, I guess I am one of those that doesn’t like loose endings. Does Francine and Colt re-unite, does Colt take the junior partnership, does Michael became a responsible person.
      You leave a lot up to the reader! Oh well, on to your next book!

    6. Mr. Kowalski
      Just finished reading your book, very enjoyable. I know it is fiction, but my family closely parallels your story. My grandfather came to the US in 1905 from the the Austrian partitioned part of Poland as you mentioned your great grandfather did likewise, but in the fiction part of your book. Your great grandparents are buried in St Stanislaus as you mention also in the fiction part of your book as are my grandparents.
      In the “afterword” you list the initials J.C. the J is for Jan, but what does the “C” represent?
      I want to write a review of the book for my family, but I would like to pin down a fact or two if possible. We are almost exclusively Expats, but a fair number still live in Western New York, and we gather for funerals et al. Yours is an excellent story I wish I would have thought to have written such a book.
