About the Author

Born in Poland in 1904, Witold Gombrowicz moved to Argentina just before the outbreak of the Second World War and lived there, virtually unknown, writing novels, short stories, and plays before taking up residence in France. His death in 1969 was a great loss not only for Polish literature but for the world of letters.

Writer, translator, and retired psychiatrist Danuta Borchardt has also translated Witold Gombrowicz's novels Ferdydurke and Cosmos. Her short stories have been published in Exquisite Corpse.

Reviews

"Danuta Borchardt... is faithful to the substance of the original and gives the reader a good, zesty flavor of Gombrowicz's inspired idiosyncrasy." -- Eva Hoffman
"Probably the most important twentieth-century novelist most Western readers have never heard of." -- Benjamin Paloff
