About the Author

Poet, novelist, playwright, Futurist, Catastrophist, Bruno Jasieński was born Wiktor Bruno Zysman on July 17, 1901 in Klimontàw, a provincial town near Sandomierz, Poland. With the poet Stanislaw Mlodozeniec (1895-1959) and the poet/painter Tytus Czyzewski (1880-1946) he founded the Krakàw Futurist group Katarynka (Barrel Organ). Considered the enfant terrible of Polish literature by this time and lauded by critics throughout the country, Jasieński in 1923 suddenly declared the end of Futurism in Poland. Living in Moscow since 1929, he was arrested and then executed on September 17, 1938.
Canadian born Krakow resident, Gauger is the author of the story collection Hymns to Millionaires and the translator of Waiting for the Dog to Sleep by Jerzy Ficowski.

"These are small but not minor works, and again show Jasie ski to have been a considerable talent. ... The Legs of Izolda Morgan, in its lovely Twisted Spoon edition, is a very appealing little book. Jasie ski deserves a larger readership ..." The Complete Review"
