Marcin Kuhn was born in Krakow, Poland. He came to the United States with his family when he was only four years old. Marcin has been writing poetry since high school. Over the years, his experiences of drinking, working, and trying to survive in the 21st century have shaped his poetry. Not only does it have a contrast that is both brutal and beautiful, it provides a universal voice to the struggles of the working class poor. Beautiful Tyrants is his first book of collected poetry. Marcin currently resides in Yonkers, N.Y.
