Polish Endgame

(p.139) Tadeusz Konwicki
Between Fire and Sleep
Jaroslaw Anders
Yale University Press

This chapter describes the life and works of Polish novelist, film director, and screenwriter Tadeusz Konwicki. Konwicki successfully captured the uncanny mood of the final years of communism in his novels and his nonfiction writing. The system in his novels appears less as a coercive tyranny than as a black hole warping and demeaning every dream and desire.

Keywords:   Polish writers, prose writers, Polish literature, communism
