About the Author
"Having this book in my hands, I felt a joy at the thought that strong personalities, like that of Gombrowicz, sooner or later find recognition thanks to the sheer intensity of their existence."--Czeslaw Milosz, New York Times --Czeslaw Milosz "New York Times"
"If ever a life demanded a diary, this was one."--Paul West, Washington Post
--Paul West "Washington Post"
"Yale University Press by reprinting in a beautiful fat paperback an up-dated complete edition of the Diaries of Witold Gombrowicz has done a singular important, essential and remarkable job."--Thomas McGonigle, ABC of Reading--Thomas McGonigle "ABC of Reading"
"Widely considered the Polish author's masterpiece . . . the Diary lacks for nothing: history, politics, philosophy, literature, art, music, love, death, humor, communism, Poland, Europe, writing--everything is there."--Paris Review Daily--Thomas McGonigle "Paris Review Daily"
"A heroic translation . . . English-speaking readers can finally experience the diary as Gombrowicz intended it--as a single, coherent work . . . his major creative endeavor."--Ruth Franklin, New Yorker--Thomas McGonigle "New Yorker"
"The spiky brilliance and episodes of vivid experience that share the pages of the Diary with essay-length reflections give the collection as a whole a restive, fugitive rhythm. . . . A provocative experience."--Eric Banks, Bookforum--Eric Banks "Bookforum"
