Editorial Reviews

Book Description:
Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz's work is familiar to every Polish reader, yet remains unknown to the outside world. The stories in this selection were all written in the 1930s, and provide an extraordinary evocation of Poland's first brief era of independence between the wars. They are also timeless sonatas of love and loss.

About the Author:
Jaroslaw Iwaszkiewicz (1894-1980) was one of Poland's outstanding twentieth-century writers. Best remembered for his novels and stories, he also wrote poetry, plays and essays. He was an active participant in Warsaw's cultural life between the wars as a member of the Skamander group of poets. During the wartime occupation he helped a number of writers and artists to hide. After the war he was editor of Poland's leading literary journal, and chairman of the Polish Writers Union.

Leszek Kolakowski is one of the Europe's most eminent philosophers. His books include Main Currents of Marxism, God Owes Us Nothing, Presence of Myth, and Metaphysical Horror. He is a Fellow of All Soul's College, Oxford.

Timothy Garton Ash is well known for his writings about Central Europe. His books include The Polish Revolution: Solidarity, The Uses of Adversity: Essays on the Fate of Central Europe, The File: A Personal History, and, most recently, History of the Present. He is Director of the European Studies Centre at St Antony's College, Oxford.
