International Writing by Women/ E.Europe

Translated from Polish by Anna Marianska

This is an urbane, richly detailed memoir of one woman's struggle to understand her times and to live creatively amid the violence of World War Two and its chaotic aftermath. Ms Koscialkowska has a distinguished reputation among post-war writers both inside Poland (where her works were banned under communism) as well as throughout the considerable Polish diaspora. Her story gains in relevance with each recurrance of ethnic turmoil in today's new Europe.
